Georgia-Pacific Mess Test design by Hot Sauce

Georgia-Pacific and Grainger partnered with Hot Sauce to design and build the Mess Test - a microsite with quizzes, tips, and expert advice for businesses to evaluate their restrooms, breakrooms, and workplaces for best practices in cleanliness and sanitation.

Initial Concepting

Our process began with a creative brief, and initial concepts to stir up the creative juices.

At Hot Sauce, we like to use a variety of techniques to help elicit and share ideas - from back-of-the-napkin sketches to mood boards and mock-ups.

Content Strategy and Development

Once we'd settled on the overall concept for the quizzes, Hot Sauce developed the overall content approach, writing questions that were friendly, informal, and a little irreverent.

Hot Sauce supported the Mess Test campaign with writing for radio spots and related material.
