Becoming a better designer takes time. You need to learn the skills that are relevant to your industry. It would help if you practiced making decisions and following through on them.
There is always room for improvement in design. Just like anyone else, you need to put in the effort to get better. The question is: what type of effort? That's up to you. If you want to get better as a designer, one of the best things you can do is to get involved in design groups and communities where others are learning and growing.
When problem-solving, people always look at the worst-case scenario. So when you start, especially as a beginner or a newbie, you should imagine all the ways any advice you receive could go wrong — and then start thinking about the pros and cons of it.
What are Designers' skills? Just like a musician or an artist, a designer requires specific skills to create beautiful things that people want to buy. Design is more than Colors and Shapes. A good design contains underlying thoughts/ideas/thoughts that can be applied to almost anything. A designer thinks in units of size, color, contrast, and motion. A good illustrator uses perspective and shapes to communicate their message effectively. A programmer cares about logic and consistency in their designs.
Becoming a better designer requires 1 or 2 tools: Figma(diagram) and Photoshop(raster). Figma (figma.io) is a free open-source online tool to create 2D vectors.
There is a huge amount of information out there on web design, but how can you understand how the different elements interact? A good starting point is to Learn Typography, Layouts, Colors, White-Space. You can use this information to help create a layout that showcases your work in a visually appealing manner.
Try to imitate nature. Nature is the best designer. If you think magenta and yellow don't go together, ask nature (birds and flowers) you will see how beautiful they look.
If you think asymmetric design doesn't look good. Observe nature.
