Fonts are sexy. Okay, maybe not, but they are a major element of print and web design. Heck, you’re looking at one right now. Fonts impact how we perceive information.

Earlier this year, John August and his team at Quote-Unquote Apps, Nima Yousefi and Ryan Nelson, launched Bronson Watermarker at the Mac App Store to do just that and more.
