It's quite difficult to get noticed or to get called for an interview as a web designer. What do you suggest? What should I do? I also created few gigs as well. Doesn't seem to be working as off yet.

I am no expert but I can talk based on my experience.

Since you mentioned you created a few gigs, I am assuming you are talking about Fiverr. I haven't used Fiverr before but try to increase your online presence. My articles on medium and stuff helped me land my first gig. Also, initially, I had applied for and accepted low-paying gigs (20$ for a web scraping task which took me 3 hours).
