About us - Factor 1 Studios - A Worry-Free Creative Agency In AZ

14 years of Factor1

14 years of hard work, tears, pain, suffering, celebrations, marriages, kids, people graduating up in their careers, and others joining on for the ride. Our team has changed over the years but the spirit of Factor1 remains.

Do the hard work, the first time. People matter more than profits. Stay humble & stay hungry. Help those around you. Encourage the struggling. Praise the wins. Nurture the growing.  And at the end of the day. Give a Shit.

Matt Adams // President

Since he was a little boy, helping others has been at the core of Matt’s value system. Factor1 was born out of the ‘people before profits’ mindset. Matt started his early career in print design and marketing. By surrounding himself with people more talented, he now spends most of his days juggling projects and crafting strategies to client problems.

Matt is an avid competitive cyclist and Apple geek. He loves bikes, good whiskey, and his twin sons Noah & Ezra.
