Today there are tools for every kind of design item you want to make. When I first started in design way back in 2003 we have a few software tools that we would use to do almost everything.
Those where Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Flash. With those tools we could do website designs, animations, character illustrations and many other things.
Now if you take 1 application like Adobe XD you see there are another 10-15 apps that do the same but with their own advantages. It makes it hard to choose the tools you need any more. But if I can give you 1 advice that my university professors told me it was: Photoshop is just a tool just like a pencil, those will not make you creative it will just make your task faster and easier.
I like to say that whatever tools there are we can learn it easy. Remember to use your mind and practice your creative techniques such as drawing with pencil. For software, use whatever software you feel comfortable with that gets you results.
