For the web/mobile one of the most fundamental aspects of design is typography, study it, I recommend this book. Also it will teach you to diagram and grids, your design will improve a lot with that.

I'd also highly recommend Thinking With Type. It's a very quick read (as most of the book is visual) and gives you a great foundation for understanding and designing with typography.

Go read Thinking with Type by Ellen Lupton

Then go and get a Typekit account and start experimenting.

Good design (any kind of design, not just web design) requires time and iteration. It's a skill, you have to practise it.
