Social Media. Be very active on social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. Interact with designers and ask good questions that you may have. Social media is the platform where designers interact the most and help out each other.
Youtube. If you are a person who prefers video content more than written content, then you should watch YouTube videos regularly. Subscribe to channels such as Adobe Creative Cloud, Flux, Google Design, Charlie Marie, AJ & Smart, Jesse Showalter and Design Pilot.
Design Events. Attending design events and conferences that are conducted in your city is very helpful. you get to meet designers in person, learn about new things, build relationships, get jobs or internships and have fun.
Inspiration. Explore creative platforms such as Dribbble and Behance multiple times in a day. This will help you to get ideas, motivation, discover the design trends and see what designers all around the world are working on.
Practice&Feedback. Practice by redesigning few screens of an app or a website that have a lot of UI and UX problems. Educational, government and banking apps are a good place to start as they mostly have bad design. reach out to designers who like and ask the, for feedback on it.
