Hello I'm trying to roughen up my vector box in Illustrator but I'm not having a lot of luck with the "Distort>Roughen Effect".

Any tips on how to better arrive a "rough vector edge" look like on the box here:

Usually that type of thing is better done in Photoshop.

But to do something like that In Illustrator, you could use the rectangle tool to draw a box, then apply a Brush to the stroke, from the Brush Palette.
There are a bunch of brush libraries in the drop-down menu.
You would probably also have to Object/Expand to match the color.

Or, you could Live Trace an actual photo that has the rough edge that you are looking for, or perhaps a scan of your own brush strokes.

Just a few ideas.
