I disagree, but okay :) To each his/her own.

comment How have these illustrations been created?
It's Facebook... you could ask them. There's no way of telling how they were created simply by looking at them. Clearly they are hand drawn, but beyond that who know.

comment How to join two overlapping non-end points that belong to two paths?
@supercat unnecessary. Easier, MUCH easier, construction is to merely draw a rectangle with a thick stroke and then draw the cross members to end at the corners, on top of that thick stroke. The issue the original question has is that all path segments end at corner points. Back them off the corner a bit and it's not an issue.

comment When designing, what techniques can be used for determining if the right amount of “fluff” has been added?
I add no fluff. Everything has a purpose. The Daily Show and Today Show items you point out are specifically designed to pull the eye and give a sense of movement. They aren't "fluff" at all. The ASIS ad.. overly controlling client wanting a buch of "techno goo" inserted. Kenwood, again, no fluff there.

comment Where can I find shape files that have not been saved (PS CC)
Even if you found them, there's no way to pull anything out of them or get Photoshop to use them again. Like I posted, they are unrecoverable.

comment What size should a business card be to fit snugly into a 3.5x2.25" sleeve?
I'd simply use the size of the link you posted, 1/4" larger for the sleeve.

comment Inaccurate snapping in Illustrator—help!
Is it possible that the snapping is lining up the bottom right corner of that rectangle? The video doesn't show the opposite corner. The only way to stop artboard snapping is to turn ON Smart Guides and turn OFF everything else.

comment How to switch the visibility setting of two layers in a single action in Illustrator?
I don't see a way to accomplish this with one step. Layer visibility isn't recordable in an action. The only possible way to do this is with a script, and the script would have to be very specific with layer names.

comment What size should a business card be to fit snugly into a 3.5x2.25" sleeve?
Those sleeves are designed to fit the standard card size, so you really shouldn't need any adjustment. You don't want it "snug" because then it'll be impossible to pull out.
