adrien groleas


Adrien studied Design at e-artsup in Lyon for 3 years before coming to Paris to take up a 2-year Masters in Interaction Design. He was top of his year at e-artsup Paris, and went to HEC to take his Digital Innovation for Business certificate, where he wrote his dissertation in French public service and innovation design (supervised by the founder of Plausible Possible) and brought his study topic to life in partnership with the Innovation Mission at the Département du Val d’Oise, on France’s bid for the 2025 World Fair.

During his studies, Adrien did design gigs for several startups in Lyon and in Paris (MyBandMarket, MyLuckyDay…) and worked part time for design agencies (Mieux, PureAgency & CosaVostra). He ended up working for big brands (Total, Darty, Dior, AccorHotels, Vinci…), helping startups with their intraprenariat programs (OuiFlash, o’Barbershop…), and also thinking up projects financed by Google’s Fondation for Digital Innovation of the Press in France and elsewhere in Europe.

Adrien’s training and passions lie in innovation design and service design. He joined Haigo to bring his work into a user-centric mindset, which is what is most important to him.

When he’s not working for a client, you can find him at a Nicolas Nova lecture, at the opening of a new startup or organising a design workshop at a Paris business school.
In exchange for all this brilliance, you’ll have to put up with his incessant puns, and the dodgy restaurants where he’ll want to take you. Pro tip: don’t ask him what he’s listening to under those headphones clamped to his ears; he might just make you listen to that racket that hipsters call music
