Created in 1974, AD® Marker was one of many in the long line of solvent based markers used for advertising, fashion and conceptual illustration from the 1950s - 1980s.  The brilliant colored, transparent marker strokes are a classic feature of this era of illustration.

Today, AD® stands for Art and Design as our product range continues to grow.
