    Although the basics like typography, spacing, contrast, information hierarchy, etc are all important, the thing that separates a Senior Product/UX Designer from a Jr. or Midlevel is a holistic view of the product design cycle, and experience with more than just ux/ui. You should work on soft skills, pitching, presenting your work, and dabble in research and drafting product requirements as well.

    A Senior Designer should be able to pinch hit for a PM, basically, or at least have a deep understanding of what makes a good experience. There's lot of books, but the best teacher is experience. Anyone can throw up some good work on dribbbl by copying other's work or using a sketch UI kit, but those candidates always fall apart in panel interviews because they don't have a deep understanding of why they made the visual/ux/ui decisions they did.
