9 Free Adobe Illustrator CS3 Brushes and Symbols

Looking for free Illustrator brushes or symbols? I created 9 free Adobe Illustrator symbols and brushes for anyone who needs rounded triangles or alert symbols, warning symbols. These free brushes and symbols are all fully editable within Adobe Illustrator, so you can change the colors, sizes, and customize them as needed. In addition, I’ve included resources to many more Illustrator brushes, symbols, tutorials, and resources.

4 Free Illustrator Symbols - Rounded Triangle Symbols and Alert Symbols, Warning Symbols

This Illustrator symbol library includes 4 symbols total, 2 of which have 'Web 2.0' style mirrored glass table reflections. As I mentioned above, you can edit the colors, the sizes, and fully customize them to your needs within Illustrator. Illustrator CS3 Symbols - Alert or Warning Symbols, Rounded Triangle Symbols

  • Basic black rounded triangle symbol
  • Basic black rounded triangle symbol with Web 2.0 style mirrored glass table reflection
  • Alert symbol or warning symbol (gradient yellow triangle, black '!' exclamation point)
  • Alert symbol or warning symbol above with Web 2.0 style mirrored glass table reflection

Note - I don’t know if they’ll work or not for earlier versions of Illustrator. I created them in Illustrator CS3. If anyone uses earlier versions and confirms that they work, please let me know and I’ll confirm that here! Thanks.
