Intended to whet your appetite, the above gallery post is a just a tiny sample of the fabulous Art & Design content we have available.

Remember if you are using imagery or information you find on Scran for school work, portfolio preparation or even SQA coursework, it is vital that you attribute the usage correctly. You can get advice on our © is for Copyright page and we are happy to answer any questions if you want to contact us. We are here to help and appreciate it can be a tricky subject.

For any Blogging Bootcamp schools out there working on a Glow Blog, which is public, it is best to follow the example set in this post. When using Scran content in this manner, it is permitted to insert the thumbnail sized images, then hyper link them back to Scran & of course, attribute the copyright holder – see below. Meanwhile happy blogging!

We’ve even got our favourite sturdy pair of Doctor Martens from 1994 ready for the occasion. The Scran staff hope to learn a bit more about blogging – as well as sharing information about Scran, copyright, digital assets and our schools outreach work.

If you are taken by our lovely green Docs and fancy more fashionable footwear, why not browse through historical and contemporary shoe designs here.
