While searching for an address on Google Maps, Yousuke Ozawa noticed something about the virtual buildings. Using the satellite images, he discovered the tops of several locations resembled letters of the alphabet.
The art director then went in search of all 26 letters. The project took him a week of zooming and scrolling over miles of cityscapes, but the eye strain was worth it when he succeeded in finding all letters. He then used those images to create the “Satellite Font.” You never know what you’ll discover when you look close enough.

You can find all the letters over on his blog, and take a crack at creating your own monikers with the abstract alphabet. I just can’t imagine using these in an email.
