comment Is programming a website for mobile first really necessary?
Mobile first is all about focus on essentials, both in programming to deliver assets and design to present content. As such, it is a great way to start the design of a responsive website, because you find yourself reduced to the minimum of content elements and layout choices and are forced to prioritise.

comment How to change the color of the artboard in Adobe Illustrator?
This is it! After about two years, this is the one answer that seems to actually work. For anybody reading, note that you can set the both grid colors, so picking, for example, grey and grey checkers will give you a solid grey background when turning transparency grid on. Bravo!

comment What does a “normal” British pound sign look like?
Also note that with many currency symbols it is both valid to use the single or double slash. Personally, I think this particular aspect just should be consistent throughout a typeface.

@user568458 You're probably right. What I meant was that in order to understand the script behind the glyph, one has to understand its origin. I.e. the L shape most likely stemming, even though somewhat distantly, from the roman "Libra" unit, which in fact would hint at writing it like a (cursive) L, with some specific conventions like the already mentioned curly terminals.

comment Critique: Does this image looking like active brain?
Literally just a comment: To me it looks almost more like lungs. For a brain, there is too little of the loops and twists of the grey matter. The animations seem to orderly for my taste - the brain's signals are chaotic and organic, not organised and steady.

Just as an aside still: (Pound-like L with double horizontal dash) was used as the sign for "Lira", the Italian currency before the Euro. Also there is a Turkish Lira, see here for writing form: upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/af/…

Great answer. Similar to adapting foreign scripts, deducting the "look" of the character from writing is a great method. What I wished still for an answer to OPs question is the origin of the glyph, like how did it come to be this shape.

Ironically, as a european I've come to this same question just regarding the $ sign.
