First of all you should refine your design skills, regardless of medium or tools. Good design doesn’t some from technical skills, it comes from learning graphic design in terms of theory (typography, proportions, grids, color theory, etc), history, etc. Only after this and staying connected with the trends and their motivations you will need to start asking about what tools to use.

Design is a very complex and lengthy endeavor (maybe the most complex that humans set themselves to do). It will not come too you just out of a book or tutorial.

Exactly. Looking for tool education is the wrong approach. Study well designed things and deconstruct what makes them successful. Good design and good engineering are very similar.
