Welcome to this month’s Dig This Design, our series dedicated to showcasing the websites we think are making waves on the web. It’s purpose is to recognize our peers—the creative teams and companies that are filling the web with beautiful and innovative design.
Invoke Appeals to the Senses
Invoke Media is an interactive agency hailing from the cool and creative Canadian city of Vancouver. Their impressive client roster spans sought-after consumer brands such as Gap and Dove all the way to adored media outlets including The Onion and ESPN. They also help create tech start-ups such as HootSuite and Snack Box. So it’s obvious their elegant website animation would parallel their agency name.

Welcome to Dig This Design. Each month, we’ll showcase pioneering websites crafted by our peers—the creative teams and companies that push the envelope in our industry. Let’s dive into some inventive work that has recently caught our eye.
Jack is Back (with extra bacon)
There’s no denying the gastronomic beauty of bacon. That’s why we’re excited about the new Bacon Insider from Jack in the Box. It’s the first burger to mix three full strips of bacon right in the patty. Now that’s smart! But what’s more appealing than the extra flavor is the campaign page they created for the 2014 Super Bowl. It entices with a rich, bright design reminiscent of a blue bird day on the farm. The entertaining, scroll-triggered motion design and a “Bork Blaster” arcade game will have you pining for a bacon-filled bite.
But let’s talk type. The main font is Halis Rounded by Ahmet Altun. This lovely typeface isn’t available as a web font, but our WebINK library has similarly stunning specimens such as Co Headline, Metallophile and Hermes Optimo.
