Alongside world class learning facilities, Dubai British School, Jumeirah will play host to The Mangrove Café, Taaleem’s new school dining experience.  The Mangrove Café concept and brand was developed by Taaleem and Kidzink, a project led by Kidzink Marketing Director, Adam James.

“When we partner with a school, Kidzink’s services extend far beyond the ‘typical’ work of a design agency.  For DBS Jumeirah, our we’ve been lucky enough to work with Taaleem on their fantastic new school dining brand, Mangrove Café, something we are all incredibly excited to see brought to life. Kidzink have also produced a way finding system that synchronises perfectly with the building design.  What’s more, we have been able to incorporate many subtle elements of the DBS brand throughout the school building and interior design. 

“That is the beauty of Kidzink’s truly holistic design service, our creations support the work of educators, and amplify the school’s brand and market positioning”.
