Matters of Wonder

Wonder is all around us if we just take time to feel, see, and hear it. But only if it is welcomed and ready or as Henry David Thoreau stated "It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see." Join Justin Ahrens as he shares an exploration of wonder and how we can shift to "See" differently.

Innovative Product Design in Publishing: The Filament Bible as a test case

Innovation isn’t something that can be replicated by following a simple, defined process, but we can learn valuable lessons by reviewing the path that others have taken to identify and create new ideas. This session will review key aspects of the process that went in to developing a product that led to Tyndale House Publishers earning a U.S. Patent: the Filament Bible project. Combining elements of design thinking with a start-up mentality that operated independently across traditional structures of the company, this innovation success story can help you identify a path to innovative product design that will continue to push our industry forward.

  • Keith Williams, Tyndale House editor and co-inventor of The Filament Bible
