facta is a digital studio that builds websites with code and craft.

Facta, non verba.

Founded on the Latin principle of “deeds, not words,” we are a digital design and development team based in Boston, MA.

We strive to make the complex simple, the mundane exciting, and the impossible no big deal.

Enough talk, lets get to work.

We enjoy partnering directly with clients, but we’re just as comfortable working behind the scenes with agencies who share our values.

No matter the objective, no matter the client, we take great care to determine the challenges, scope, and goals of the project. And then we follow through with a product we’re all proud of.

matthew wright

Eleven years ago Matthew became a massage therapist who took a class in coding to build a site for his business. A few months later he got two job offers: one from a spa and one from a web development agency. Since that day he’s created WordPress themes and plugins with a deep understanding of his client’s musculoskeletal system.

He’s passionate about building innovative designs that don’t sacrifice UX for the sake of UI. Matthew leads the accessibility department at Facta and takes pride in developing sites that all users can enjoy.
