Alaska Business was established in 1984 and is Alaska’s premier business magazine and website. Our goal is to promote economic growth in the state by providing a thorough and objective discussion and analysis of the issues and trends affecting Alaska’s business sector. We feature stories about individuals, organizations, and companies that shape the Alaska economy.
In March of 2017, Alaska Business Monthly rebranded to become Alaska Business, marking our transition from being solely a monthly print magazine to a multimedia publisher. To further our rebranding efforts in October 2018 Alaska Business refreshed and updated our logo and print magazine design to reflect a cleaner and more contemporary look.
Alaska Business emphasizes the importance of all enterprises, from the large multinational corporations that do business in the state to the numerous sole proprietorships. We stress a statewide approach to business coverage with stories from all regions of the state and offers topical diversity just as broad as the Alaska economy itself.

The Art of Architecture
Architects often find themselves facing something of a chicken and egg dilemma. When it comes to design, what takes precedence—form or function?
“It’s a great question, and it’s probably a loaded question,” says David McVeigh, president of RIM Architects. “You can ask ten different architects and get ten different answers.”
Many of the factors that influence those answers land outside the architect’s control. The client’s vision for the building, its location and intended use, the project budget, and whether the design must conform to specific guidelines are all details the architect must consider when determining how much emphasis to place on aesthetics and how much on function.
