First, make sure you understand what the term "game design" is. http://www.sloperama.com/advice/lesson28.htm

And what a game designer does.

Well, if you have some schooling in graphic design, presumably you know how to draw sketches and lay out illustrations for your designs. But you also need to be able to communicate ideas. Read those links above, and read the Switching Careers article too: http://www.sloperama.com/advice/lesson41.htm
