Colourful is the new black

Curwoods invite the Jersey community to redecorate our Daimler hearse with a colourful and imaginative design

Curwoods Limousines – Jersey’s oldest limousine company has partnered with Maillards Funeral Directors to run a new design competition that’s a first of its kind in Jersey.

‘Colourful is the new black’ is inviting both professional and budding artists or designers of any creative medium to create a design to be applied to the Daimler hearse which will form part of the Curwoods funeral fleet.

The competition is open to anyone of any age living in Jersey. Curwoods Limousines is encouraging artists to be as creative as they wish with the only requirement being that it must encompass a theme of ‘Celebrating Life’. In January a winner will be announced. The lucky winner will pocket themselves £500 in cash and have their design applied to the outside of the hearse.

Nevil Smith, Operations Director at Curwoods Limousines said:
“Some families have said they don’t want a black hearse for their loved one’s funeral. Curwoods has listened to the requests of our clients and we would like to offer something different for families who have lost a loved one. We still have our collection of traditional hearses as well as a new modern Jaguar fleet of vehicles. The new design for our hearse will form part of our fleet of over fifteen vehicles. Curwoods has been a part of the Jersey community for 128 years so it was a natural fit to invite the people of Jersey to create a new design for our hearse.”

Julian De La Cour, Managing Director at Maillards Funeral Directors said:
“Maillards Funeral Directors is delighted to partner with Curwoods Limousines and be part of their innovative idea. Our involvement in the competition forms part of the Maillards Celebrating Life Project a new initiative which will see Maillards sponsor and support various local people and causes in 2021. The purpose of the project is to help islanders celebrate their life, no matter their age. We understand death can be difficult to discuss but want to highlight that as funeral directors our role is to celebrate someone’s life. Every person is unique so we believe that every funeral should be too.”
