Following the creation of the highly successful Mii make-up brand in 2010, Pearlfisher has 
created the brand strategy, naming, tone of voice, identity, graphic and structural 
packaging and marketing collateral for Kissed by Mii, the new tanning range from Gerrard 
International. 
Made with marine minerals including coral seaweed extract, Kissed by Mii offers a 
sophisticated, calm and reassuring experience, in a celebrity saturated world where tanning 
can be seen as complex, frenetic and full of potential disaster. Designed for use in spas, 
salons and at home, the Kissed by Mii range includes an exfoliator, mitt, moisturiser and 
tanning lotion in two shades for all skin tones. 
Pearlfisher Creative Director, Sarah Cattle, described the design approach, “When done 
well and with consideration, a tan makes us feel like we are a better version of our natural 
selves. Therefore, Kissed by Mii needed to bring to life the positive and emotionally 
enriching experience that reflects the feeling we have when we’re tanned - making 
consumers feel great from the inside out.” 
She continues, “The illustrative style and colour palette makes reference to the marine 
minerals that are unique to the brand, whilst the sophisticated touches of gold in the identity 
and illustration reflect the glow of sun-kissed skin.” 
“The brand’s tone of voice has been carefully designed to cut through the confusion of the 
tanning category, quelling previously common worries about the smell, shade and longevity 
of different tanning brands. Clear brand messaging communicates the three simple stages 
to ‘prepare’, ‘bare’ and ‘care’ for your skin using the Kissed by Mii range.” 
Kissed by Mii is available in salons and spas nationwide and the Gerrard International 
website, now.
