Web Design with Purpose: cosmos.layervault.com

While I love the design of this site, I really want to highlight its purpose. Cool web products are a dime a dozen. Every now and again, a company that develops web-design tools has a sincere connection and loyalty to the community they support. This is such a case.

Layer Vault

The company behind this simple portal of free and awesome stuff is a money-making business. But they’ve opted to share—for free—some of the handy and awesome tools they’ve created along the way. So not only do they give back to the community, but they get some very nice promotion and credit for doing so. Well done, Layer Vault.
