From the real world to the web, the arrow symbol has been an essential tool that has helped get us to where we need to be in our everyday experiences. In web design especially, arrows have played an important role in guiding the user experience of our audiences, whether it’s through a call-to-action button, a navigational element, or even a link to an upcoming slide.
We use them constantly at DT – and to such a degree that we thought it’d be great to create a way of making this versatile symbol much more accessible to our daily workflows.
Therefore, we’re very excited to announce Arrrows, a fully scalable icon font for all of your design needs.
With the current direction of the web and the growing use of CSS styles and web fonts, we realized that having a font library of different style arrows would not only save time in our workflows but also be a valuable tool in executing our designs on the web.
Here are some of the things we love the most about Arrrows:
- Dozens of different arrow styles to choose from for all types of use (normal arrows, decorated arrows, media player arrows, cursors, download/upload arrows, and general UI-related arrows to name a few)
- Two arrow styles, normal arrows and circled arrows, determined by two different font weights (Regular and Bold)
- Intuitive and easy access to different directions of arrow characters: lowercase characters and numbers for one direction (right) or uppercase and symbols for the other (left)
- Easy web font integration via @font-face implementation
Also, whether you decide to get the free icon set or font bundle, you’ll get access to the fully editable and scalable pixel perfect PSD containing the entire Arrrow icon set in both normal and circled arrow styles.
We hope that you’ll enjoy using Arrrows as much as we do!
