Why is there a Guidelines page?

Put it this way, I wanted to pretend to be ‘business-like’ and this page was then created. I also wanted to outline that this site is protected and you shouldn’t be stealing from it (not that there is anything to steal unless you really wanted to steal the logo but don’t – I worked on that for over a year).

This page’s purpose now is just to show that the work is protected, and what the image at the top of this page means.

PAGE UPDATES SINCE 2017: 

  • There was a distinction between Shane Simpkin (brand) and Shane Simpkin (person) which has now been removed as quite literally, there is only me.

 

What does all this mean?

1. Attribution.

  • You must give *appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and *indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.
