I am not an expert (not even a pd person) but here are some basic ideas you can consider and evaluate and make progress:

1 - when ot comes to designing think minimalistic. Think what your users need and how they can get it done in least possible clicks and scrolls/pages menus etc

2 - start with something very simple and small. Create mvp prototype. Complete full lifecycle of code test build release and deploy (automate). Then start adding mpre features and enhancements one after the other

3 - focus more on what ur user needs getting done rather than how to impress them with ur design

4 - let ur design evolve. Let ur ask for more then u add. Keep simplistic.

4- choose colors carefully. E.g simply start with black n white and then later add colors
