Melle Zijlstra (1978) is a Dutch researcher and product designer also active in copywriting. I work internationally from Bath (UK) and Dublin (Ireland).


Spormester –
A tangible user interface for ERTMS, the rail traffic control system of the future.



As a researcher my main interest is professional user interaction with complex systems and as a designer I focus on user research, creative concept development and tangible user interface design. I am also an experienced copywriter specialising in the field of design; I write for both profit and not for profit organisations. I combine a practical and straightforward approach with a strong theoretical background in design and writing and a fundamental belief in cooperation.
