Hello down there

Send a geoGreeting written in the most unique typeface ever: each letter is a building somewhere in the world, viewed from above using Google Maps. If you've got lots of spare time on your hands, feel free to spend some of it combing the earth in search of better letter shapes. The creator of geoGreetings, a grad student at the University of Minnesota, welcomes submissions. And happy Earth Day!

What a cool idea! I knew a girl who write words with her own outdoor pictures but I did not know the Goggle Map one.

Let's try this again.

It does not surprise me in the slightest that a grad student at the University of Minnesota had the time to come up with this. Don't those people work over there?!?

Jess said...

Seriously. What's up with that school, anyhow. :)
