    This is a bit shameful but the best way to learn for me is to copy beautiful works. Not only you know the process to create them. Over the time, it will give you a sense of what is good v.s the rest.

    So I guess you want to be another person who reads 8-10 tutorials and start calling yourself a graphic designer?

    Well, first thing you should know, nothing is easy. But if you have the passion, you really love graphic design and you will make a living out of it, it will be easier to suffer. Start with basic books, like Grid Systems in Graphic Design, Typographic Elements... Do not go to Behance, seeing all the fancy stuffs and recreate them, it won't get you anywhere. Develope your own style from the base the books teach you. And practice alot. Everyday. Design something new everyday. Be patient.

    Good luck bro.

    Graphic Design is all about conceptual solutions to real-world problem solving. The computer is just one of the tools used to accomplish the tail end of this process.

    Best advice: Enroll in a good BA (Hons) Graphic Design programme, and study for at least three years with possibly an MA in Typography afterwords.

    2nd best advice: really learn to draw – helps no end with the visualising.

    I agree with Highluong and do this myself.

    You can be a good designer, but not be very creative. And you can be very creative, but not be a good designer.

    At least by copying others' works, you can improve your technical skills while using the design tools which, in turn, will allow you to eventually put some of your own ideas into form.

    The hack design website might be useful. It's more orientated towards UI and web design but there are plenty of articles on typography, colour etc.

    I went to college for 6 years, got a bachelor's degree, and the whole time I was in school they treated us like you either had it or didn't. They didn't really "teach" us anything, rather gave us projects to solve. Therefore, I learned most of my technical "skills" from various tutorials, trial-and-error, and being adventurous.

    Univeristy or college don't really teach you the technical aspects of Graphic Design, such as how to use Adobe. Whilst they do offer some guidance and assistance, it is generally up to you as a student to learn the software as you go along and in your own time. University is about teaching you to think as a designer and creatively. Learning how to use Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign does not make you a designer.

    Good idea is to go for voluntary work for some agency or print house this is the best way to learn (by working !)

    The best way I learn is I give myself a practice project to do and research along the way.

    I find the best way to learn is to learn by yourself though trial and error. Books and videos will teach you the basics but each project is unique and will require different skills and your creativity on how you'll use the tools or program you have. good luck in your graphic design journey!
