Heriot Hott Sauce

Heriot Hott Sauce is a start up company based in Edinburgh, UK. The brief was to illustrate a set of flavoured hot sauces based on a character called Professor Heriot in his lab/sauce creation space. Heriot Hott has drawn inspiration and aspects from Heriot Watt University and George Heriot and James Watt. The Facebook Cover Photo used above has accents of the Heriot Watt Building as Professor Hott's throne.
George Heriot was a Scottish goldsmith and philanthropist from the 17th Century. James Watt was a Scottish inventor, mechanical engineer, and chemist who improved on Thomas Newcomen's 1712 Newcomen steam engine with his Watt steam engine in 1776. Both were innovators within their own line of work. The premise of the brief was to create a character with a similar personality to that of James and George, head-strong and bold. Someone who instills the idea of a crafter/creator.
