Simple Smileys

Simple Smileys is a cohesive collection of smileys and emoticons designed to work well alongside text on websites or in applications.

It is released into the public domain, meaning it is free (as in freedom) for any purpose. <3

Do I have to credit you or link back here to use Simple Smileys in my project?

No, you're not required to attribute or credit anyone. It would be nice if you did, though!

Sure, as long as its quality is on par with the rest of the smileys. Send it to me and I might include it in the next official release. ;)

Is Simple Smileys available in a different color scheme?

No, and there are no plans for that either. They were designed to be neutral in color, although they work better with lighter backgrounds.

Is Simple Smileys available in a higher resolution or vector format?

Not currently, but version 2.0 will completely scalable. Coming Soon™.
