Melle Zijlstra (1978) is a Dutch design researcher and product designer also active in copywriting. I’m working internationally from Dublin, Ireland.

As a researcher my main interest is in the role of physical objects in design processes and as a designer I focus on user research, creative concept development and tangible user interface design. I have experience as a copywriter specialising in the field of design; I write for both profit and not for profit organisations. I have a practical and straightforward approach, combined with a strong theoretical background in design and writing and a fundamental belief in cooperation.
