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.

This website and the simplesmileys.org domain will be taken down in March, 2021.
I would suggest you download any packages you intend to use before then. There will not be any more updates.
Thank you to everyone who have used Simple Smileys since 2006!
Why have you decided to take down the website?
We're moving on.
There is no need for Simple Smileys in the '20s. With emoji being standard for a while now there are plenty of good, scalable, alternatives out there. Back when Simple Smileys were created in 2006 the web looked a lot different than it does now. It filled a great void for many years, but now its intended role has been played out.
If for whatever reason you still want to use Simple Smileys, there is nothing stopping you. Just make sure you download anything you want to keep before this website goes down in March, 2021.
Where is the license?
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.
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?
No. There were plans for this but they never came into fruition. There's an awful preview of 2.0 if you are curious how far along I got with this back in the day.
