Best way to learn web design

I get a lot of emails from people starting out who want to learn web design.

I usually say, design websites because that's how you learn.

And there's, Planet Photoshop,, W3 Schools.

I had a couple of Sitepoint books that I found pretty useful.

Plus, I find forums very helpful, for example Estetica Design Forum,, Designer’s Talk, there’s Digital Point and Sitepoint for more code/technical queries, the WordPress forum is excellent and there’s Warrior Forum for internet marketing issues.

And, you can follow designers on Twitter, and LinkedIn groups and, maybe but not for me, FB groups?

Has anyone any other advice on how to learn web design?
