@Patrick Lauke (redux) - Quite an odd set from POW and Street Smart. The A is certainly different than most designs (thinner at it approaches the top), and the W and X are also unique.  The Y looks too similar to the V to me; it could have used a crossbar across the vertex.  The O and Q are a little too wide, but it appears the O was designed to separate it from the 0 (zero), with the Q simply following suit...  :^)
