It takes many years of a hard work to be a good designer. But there is a transcendent effort to become a highly recruited designer.
The understanding of User-Centered Design and UX design principles taught along the way. Interference between disciplines, a creativity crossed with common sense, an attractive visual decision along with a great user experience become a top-notch product.
So, to be a top-notch designer according to my experience is to:
Perfecting it to the point where esthetics is on a top-notch level.
Good, logical and rational assumptions to the decisions that you're making on each piece of work you do, in addition with common user-friendly web standards.
Imagining possibilities and making them real
