Solution
It is necessary to clarify the design? If the web design (as indicated in the tags), you can start with typography. Typography in General is useful everywhere, even just in life. Usually recommend books. The book is useful. But I love the format of articles and lessons.

A good starting point.

To be able to draw not necessary. You need to be able to solve problems graphically (again, if it is about web design). Drawing is for illustrators. A designer needs to establish a communication channel between the service/product and the consumer. Visual communication, and effective and the least means. Well, the basis of communication in the web text. So learn typography.
I do not agree. I do not understand why many say that the designer do not have to draw. This is the basis. No wonder that in all the creative Universities ranging from architects finishing graphic designers spend a lot of time in the academic drawing. Develops a lot of useful skills.
PS I Agree with the typography. Now the web is important. - brooklyn.Herman commented on July 9th 19 at 13:03
: Well, you can focus on archaic and virtually collapsed educational system, and you can turn your head and realize the reality - the choice is yours. To be able to draw no need for a designer; it is only a skill that can help, but without which you can do. - Dixie_Quigley commented on July 9th 19 at 13:06

: you don't have to rely on our education system. In European universities drawing great attention. To do that would be comfortable and beautiful for the user need to know the basics (composition, color, etc.), and drawing or painting this helps me a lot. - brooklyn.Herman commented on July 9th 19 at 13:15

First you need to understand that there are design. The design is created not for a certain circle of people it is created for the masses of consumers. Design rather design, with elements of drawing )
First you need to choose the direction in design (e.g. design and print production, graphic design, web design, 3D, etc.) to grasp ). Read articles, follow the trends, to apply their knowledge in practice. Everything comes with experience.

What is "design skills"? Skills of work with graphic editors mastered elementary, but if you have no taste, and not your, it will be rough.

Books to read, the only way to develop their imagination. You can use forbidden ways, but the effect is only a few hours.
What is a "prohibited methods"? - brooklyn.Herman commented on July 9th 19 at 13:09
