Hand Drawn Tech Law
Just after my post yesterday on some beginning thoughts on the use of visual & graphic techniques to make full-impact law presentations, I’ve just been alerted by Finnish lawyer & designer Helena Haapio of a terrific series of hand-drawn law infographic explanatory videos, from a father-daughter team out of Palo Alto.
Lawyer Richard Hsu narrates a legal situation, and daughter Maya Hsu draws out a clear & colorful explanation of what he’s saying. It’s simple & clean, and successful. Here’s a taste!
On Licensed Property
On Collaborative Development Financings
And On IP Assets in Mergers & Acquisitions
These presentations all follow the fundamental principles I had mentioned in yesterday’s post — put the priority on visuals over written text, have the visuals do much of the work (with spoken word as support & direction for the drawings), and tap into the audience’s excitement for visuals by making them lively and surprising. These are terrific examples of the power of visual law.
