Passion and perseverance – can you imagine any origin story without it? We can’t either. Design the Planet was born and raised in New Orleans (a weird and unique planet unto itself) and this is our story.


Starting Design the Planet wasn’t Adrienne’s first spacewalk. It is the place where she can pour all of her vision and creativity into projects of her choosing. With a passion for working with local Louisiana brands, she leverages her impressive marketing and design background. What else? She harnesses her immense creative and strategic abilities to help local businesses prosper. Adrienne’s drive to make the world a better place is what has shaped Design the Planet into the website development and marketing team you know and love today.

She didn’t set out to become a website and online marketing guru, but sometimes you have to go where the slip-stream takes you… And, she didn’t get here alone. A one-woman team doesn’t have all of the skill-sets and available time needed to plan and develop badass-marketing-genius websites. Adrienne has pulled together some serious talent who love to live and breathe client growth with marketing voodoo. Wanna read up on the rest of the team?


Yes, New Orleans is home and we love working with inspiring businesses from all over.

What makes Design the Planet special?

A long time ago we decided that we needed to be more of a partner with our clients to drive real change, results, success. We’ve found that you cannot turn an average website or marketing plan into a thriving system without knowing the company you’re partners with at a very deep level. So, we developed some pretty cool processes and systems to “dig deep” into brands so we can build marketing tools that help hit pay-dirt regularly.

Our clients aren’t just bystanders in the metamorphosis from old to new. They are an integral part at every important step, and they tend to love the work we do. See what they have to say

We are also proud to say “Geaux Tigers” and “Who Dat?!” when we connect with our friends around town. We’ve got your hurricanes and ya cul-cha, right here. You can say that living in a big city on the edge of a swamp with a port-o-call and laisse fare lifestyle encourages creativity and out-da-box thinking.

Design the Planet isn’t out to just make a quick buck by selling the same templates to every client. Our passion is helping second stage businesses reach their next goals, and the ones after that. This happens when we use our extensive brainpower to develop the custom solutions built specifically for them. Every amazing business we work with brings something unique to the world, and we believe that a website should be unique and targeted at the same time.

Here are the other cool things that we bring to the table for our website techno-magic: SEO, SEM, Marketing Automation, Visitor ID, UX/UI, custom design, content development, Google love (not a technical term), Social Media integration, ecommerce, WordPress, HTML, and a bag of Zapp’s chips.

So, where does strategy come in?
… Glad you asked.

Strategy really starts before your website is planned and before your marketing tactics are considered. It nestles somewhere between the WHY and the HOW. If you don’t have a strategy driving what is next for your business, never fear, Design the Planet is here. With good strategy, you will have a better plan, a better website, better marketing and YES, better results.
