    A background in finance/industry is a huge advantage (I'm speaking as a designer who works almost entirely with Fortune 500s).

    On the business side, a lot of decision makers view creatives as wishy-washy, artsy people who don't "get" business. There's a lot of interesting, valuable work to be done on the line between good business and good design.

    If you can show business folks that you understand them, you'll set yourself apart from a lot of other designers. They'll respect the rigor you bring to your work, too.
