Bad Dinosaur

What we do?

We design and build apps for startups and existing businesses, and anyone in between! We have an agile approach to building software, and can take on projects at any stage of the client’s journey. We specialise in developing Minimum Viable Products, but also offer services in building clickable prototypes & demonstration apps, branding & design, user testing and hosting.

Who we are?

Bad Dinosaur was founded in 2013 to solve an industry-wide problem. Having worked as a developer both as a freelancer and in-house, Kyle had grown frustrated with big agencies that worked slowly, and didn’t include the client in the development process. Together with co-founder Russ they established an agency that puts the client first.

At Bad Dinosaur you work closely with our designers and developers to understand the problem and for us to collaborate on a solution.

In the last few years, Bad Dinosaur has experienced a great deal of growth and has been able to offer more services to help businesses and startups create amazing digital products efficiently and cost effectively.

Who we work with?

Bad Dinosaur work across a broad range of industry sectors which include: Deathtec, Education, Health, E-commerce, Financial Services, Oil & Gas and Charity organisations.
