    I had an art teacher answer this about painting with 'brush miles.' There will some great advice in this thread, but this will be part of the answer. Mouse miles. It is a process that happens in your mind, a maturity evolves and a style that is born.

    You can follow the trends, make sure you have a lot of white space around elements, pick tried and true font pairs, grab a beautiful color scheme from a website, or better yet, a pretty photo and you will be creating capable design.

    But, to become good, or possibly great, you need to buckle down and work.

    There are those that are born naturals, in all arts, but they are rare.
