Welcome to the Works' SmileyNote Studios, inc. A gentle, kind boutique production axis where creativity matters. Our site contains examples of media projects we've created over the past 25 years. Productions large and small for clients in many sectors, each with unique design direction, goals and budgets. The results have won national awards and mega-trials, received accolades from the FBI, helped non-profits succeed and most importantly earned the appreciative thanks from many clients we now call friends. We love textures, colors, looks (and, yes, even style guides), reflections, refractions, equations and the x-factor. We don't accept typos, and get it right the first time. We hit the highs, and the low notes, and even the curve ball with noteworthy determination to solve that elusive production hurdle within challenging deadlines. "We like to solve puzzles, that's part of 3D, but love art and commerce to intersect thee."
