Hi all,

I am a graphic designer with 5 years design experience. I've always worked in the marketing dept. supporting the brand managers/marketing directors/marketing managers. Along with my design experience I have a BA in graphic design & post graduate studies in advertising & branding from School of Visual Arts.

After 2 years of looking for a job with no success I am ready to hang up my design boots and pursue a new career. I have always, in a way, enjoyed marketing. I don't think it's that drastic of a career leap which will hinder me from advancing. I really want to do branding and eventually get my MBA. Does anyone think the design degree will be a hinderance to a marketing job? Any advice as to how I should pursue it? Anyone have ever switched from the creative industry to a more business setting?

Thanks to all who have replied.
