I couldn’t agree more!

My first designs were a great example of "what not to do as a designer."
Now, my designs are much better. I’m not the world’s greatest web
designer, but I have improved since my early days.

The key really is to keep at it. Study other people’s designs and look
for what makes them appealing. Grab some design and layout books
and look for the techniques taught in the designs of others.

Build a collection of other websites that you like and study them.

As your eye gets more and more trained you’ll begin to build
better and better sites. Like anything worthwhile, it just takes
time, effort, and a passion for what you do.
