    Yeah, always try to check the work you like, try to find out why you like it, why it looks good...

    I think the sense for a good design comes with a lot of practice and a looong time.

    I cannot offer a website in addtion to the ones already posted but simply wanted to point out one or two thing to rafiq.

    There certainly is a need in any kind of study to read and learn about the basics of the profession and online turials can of course be a good addtion to books, type specimens, catalogues and so forth. However, better sooner than later you should try to get in contact with people who are working in the same domain because nothing can ever compare to the feedback that people can give you when communicating directly with you and having your work in front of them.

    Depending on were you are at there might also be the possibility to find universities, folk high schools or similar institutions that offer free (or inexpensive) courses that you might take. There you will automatically meet people that have the same interests as you and can be of much help to your professional development.

    Edit: Just one more addition: as with any craft—and design is that to a great degree–practice makes the master. So try to work a lot and always share what you are doing to get third party feedback!

    I strongly recommend to read the whole first top answer (Karen X. Cheng) of this Quora question

    Definitely worthy :)

    And if you want to be good, there´s no easy or fast way, you need to practice everyday ;)

    Study the basic via Lynda.com or Skillshare, they have a lot of great classroom there. And for sure, the best way is to practice daily, do simple stuff, research (google, pinterest) other designer's work, and sketch a lot. Over time, you will see that your style improve more and more. I don't even know Illustrator when I jumped in the design world the first time (don't have degree in graphic design), but I learnt and practice myself, no class back then, I learnt from the printer, the graphic design friend, etc. I drew a lot and that helps :)

    Try not to stuck just with online tutorials. Most of them are good to cover technical side of software, but very little of them are approaching to subject from artistic and historical context. Composition, color theory, shape lenguage, layout and grid systems, art styles and history etc. are very important aspects of graphic design. Expressing thoughs through shapes and colors requires much deeper knowledge then just know how to make mask in photoshop

    I believe that there is no shortcut to learn graphic design. It is not only about being able to use the softwares, it also involves creative thinking/design thinking and a deep understanding about design principles.

    However, you can learn it by yourself. It's easy to find books about design principles(layout, composition, color etc) as well as design thinking (AVA Books for example). Be patient, and remember that practice makes perfect.

    Already lots of people stated many great site. Practicing and studying other designs will help. I have a folder where I have put every design that I love, and try to analyze what they did, and try to creative copying.
