Background

Grad (2004) was designed by veteran type designer Phil Martin, creator of over 400 typefaces from the late ’60s through the ’80s mainly for film headline setters.

Phil Martin created Grad as a redesign of the classic Century Schoolbook for his personal use in the early ’90s. Phil made design changes, some subtle and some obvious. He also added new features like small caps, old style figures, ligatures, and swash capitals.
