Demerara Mutual Advertising Campaigns (Guyana)

“You have a Friend in Demerara Mutual – Christmas Message”

We really loved that an employee of the company voiced the final Christmas greeting for this ad. It adds so much warmth to the message!

Calypso Riddim Radio Ad for DemFire, Guyana

We love how Ras, our talent from Guyana, rendered this jingle! He was on the basketball team of our security guard in 2012. We also recorded the ad with a professional soca singer, but boy did we like Ras’s rendition better!

“So your son want to take de car (One more worry)
and your daughter now start to drive (Lawd have mercy)
Be insured with Demerara
It’s one worry less in your life.”

Calendars to join the Generations.

While we all have electronic calendars now, Demerara Mutual always felt that Caribbean homes need beautiful things on their walls, and Caribbean families need tools for interaction between the generations. We created many outstanding calendars for DM, some with folklore stories, some with cricket rules, some with cut-out animals (painted beautifully by Gabriella D’Abreau) and some with mazes!

Virtual Museum to Commemorate the Abolition of Slavery and Emancipation in Trinidad and Tobago

The Road to Freedom

Held at the National Museum of Trinidad and Tobago in 2007, we created two exhibitions to mark the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade in the British Empire, and the emancipation of slaves in Trinidad and Tobago. Aiming to highlight this important aspect of Trinidad and Tobago’s history, the exhibit featured watercolours of Trinidad’s early slave plantation society by Richard Bridgens, together with a variety of objects and historical documents pertaining to the period of the abolition.
