Background to the project

BIGBrave was recently commissioned to build a bespoke interactive map for Time Square Casino, one of South Africa’s premiere gaming facilities. The main purpose was to assist guests to find their way around the multitude of restaurants, gaming areas and amenities hosted within the casino on multiple floors. The interactive map was custom built to run on the network of interactive touch screen displays within the Casino situated in Menlyn, Pretoria East. This brand new Casino is Sun International’s latest casino and entertainment complex  and also South Africa’s second largest casino, so BIGBrave was keen to contribute to this exciting project.   The map is designed to run offline if needed, however because it is connected to a network Sun International has the freedom to update the map easily while online. This ensures that their guests always have accurate information.

Where did the idea for the map come from?

One of our team members found a Way-finding, Interactive Map solution and presented it to us at a Flux session, our internal knowledge sharing meeting. We were on the look-out for an opportunity to implement it and when Sun International approached us, we were excited to pitch this idea.  

Collaboration by Design.

We worked in close collaboration with the design team from “Circle – Branding by Design” in creating the final visually appealing interactive map. Circle was responsible for a lot of the creative design for the Sun International brand. It was great to partner with them to develop a successful way-finding solution for a new state of the art venue like Time Square.
