If you have ever tried to create arrows in Illustrator you probably know that there are a lot of ways it can be done. If you’ve ever explored some of the menus in Illustrator you probably have noticed quite a few options that allow you to create arrows rather quickly. The problem is that each option has some pros and cons. For instance, if you need a quick arrow, you can create one from scratch using basic shapes. This is pretty easy to do but if you need a lot of them it can become rather inefficient. Another way to do it is to do so by adding effects to paths. You can do this by going to Effects > Stylize > Add Arrowheads. This is a fairly decent way of adding arrowheads to lines but this too can be time-consuming and cumbersome if you are adding arrowheads to lots of lines in an illustration.
You may also have noticed a couple of art brush sets that ship with Illustrator. These work great unless you need your arrows to have corners tiles. As you may have noticed, art brushes don’t do corners that well. Pattern brushes however can. That’s why I decided to create a set of 10 arrowhead pattern brushes for Illustrator. These brushes will enable you to quickly draw arrows in Illustrator with very few draw backs. I hope you enjoy them and can use them in your designs.
