Use of Multimedia for Commercial contracts

Hi, I need your advise on how to use Multimedia for Contracts drafting to give clarity and simplification however how does it work with compliance in view of legal aspects. Can you share how companies have used this media for commercial contracts?

Kum - IACCM has featured a number of Ask The Expert webinars and presentations on visualization and contract simplification.

Many of these items can be found in the IACCM Library. One development which has received a fair amount of coverage has been the "Comic Book Contract", in which Robert De Rooy from South Africa created a graphic-rich employment contract to ensure that semi-literate agricultural workers are employed with a clear understanding of their contractual and performance objectives.

One of IACCM's members, Helena Haapio, has been very active in this area - you are encouraged to reach out to Robert and Helena, as well as anyone in IACCM's Community of Interest on Contract Drafting - Simplification and Visualization. Here is more detail about this Community of Interest:


The purpose of this community of interest is to provide its members with insights into new trends and innovations related to the way that contracts are constructed and drafted and particularly in the area of simplification and visualization of contractual documentation.

The objectives will be met by sharing ideas, discussing challenges, exploring new directions and, where appropriate, initiating research or inviting experts to present on key topics related to these topics.

Meetings will be virtual (by phone or webinar) unless in specific cases there is an agreed wish to have physical meetings or workshops to develop specific initiatives.


To inspire a growing community involved in the construction and drafting of contracts to adopt new techniques and promote the creation of clear and easy to use contracts.


- Inspire people to think differently about the purpose of a contract
- Continue to explore alternative simplification and visualization techniques
- Promote the use of simplified and visual contracts
- Encourage new members to the Community
