Bad Math

Custom software, design & consulting since 2001

Bad Math is a veteran software development and design company based in Toronto.

Over the course of our 15-year history, we’ve built a large-scale online stock footage repository, collaboration tools for the film and television production industries, various human-friendly website editing tools, web-based mapping tools, mobile web apps, interactive exhibit kiosks, and countless websites. (And something we once did for fun was exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art.)

Our work is known for an artisan’s attention to detail, sophisticated technology, a human-centric approach to interface design, and lasting relationships with clients. With professional backgrounds in interactive technologies going back to the early 90s, principals Adam Putter and Janis Mussat, together with development lead Grace Sainsbury, are most at home in those places where art and science intersect.
