In my web wanderings today I came across the Cargo Collective, a innovative design collective that offer our users free-standing websites; a wide variety of customizable templates. They also run SpaceCollective, a blog that explores that the future of web.
One of the members, Folkert Gorter, co-created with Atley G. Kasky and Will Schofield, this fantastic site But Does it Float, truly innovative design. For later exploration- all the members websites. Will Schofield has a great site, 50watts.com, about book design and illustration.
