Ways to improve my designs?

I've been designing websites for quite awhile now but I feel that my designs are not improving. They just don't "feel right" and is tremendously different from what the professionals are doing, e.g those on Dribbble.

I'm not sure how I should improve my design sense. Maybe I'm working in the wrong direction, trying to copy those professionals on Dribbble.

I'm not sure what kind of mindset I should have as a designer.

Here's my portfolio : http://li-haoquan.github.io/ Please give me critical feedbacks, no need to hold back. Thank You.

Hi Li,

Can't give you any advice on the design side of things. Your work looks really strong to me; great command of typography and colour.

But I just wanted to say on a technical note - when the screen size is around 600px wide, it looks like the image for your first project is a little short compared to the others:


All the best,
