Why do Gamewright insist on putting their games in tin boxes?

They are horrible in my opinion (and most of the gaming community for that matter). They do not sit vertically on a shelf very well, they get damaged, dented and scratched easily, the inserts tend to move around and not fit very well.

Why Gamewright, is it cost?

I can hardly imagine tin boxes to be cheaper than the more conventional cardboard boxes.

Maybe it's part of their corporate identity, and to make them stand out from the others?

While they look really pretty (at least while new), I'm not a fan of tinboxes either for the reasons you listed - and a lot of other players seem to have the same sentiments as well.
For one, I remember the review for Sushi Go Party from The Dice Tower, where Tom's only gripe with the game was basically the box:
