Jennie Westerman Diemont

Owner & Creative Director

Jennie’s a work hard, play hard kinda gal. An entrepreneur at heart, she started Deep Fried Advertising in 2004 after obtaining a degree from the Annenberg School of Communications at the University of Pennsylvania. Originally from Baton Rouge, Jennie worked for several agencies and magazines to gain valuable knowledge about the meaning of deadlines in the years before starting Deep Fried. Her passion for advertising and web development was rooted in a childhood rich in exposure to the arts and an education structured with mathematics… a background created to seek the perfect marriage between aesthetics and functionality.

Jennie’s vision for Deep Fried was to create a space where talented designers can create beautiful, working brands that increase the profitability of their clients, and have fun doing it. Under her supervision, Deep Fried has grown to an efficiently run boutique creative and interactive agency that services the branding needs of some of the best-known names in local and regional business.

Jennie is a Penn Quaker, but will always bleed purple, gold and black. She loves real estate, historic architecture, red wine, white space, country weekends, and all things français. In her spare time, she serves on the board of the Alliance Francaise de la Nouvelle Orleans and on the Chairman’s Council of the New Orleans Chamber. She is very active with WBEC South and is also a 2013 graduate of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program.
