meeting at MSI reviewing promotional poster for ASTAC

Alaskans are a little different than the human beings you’ve come to know. We like to break the ice, ski the powder, fish with bears, surf with killer whales. Yeah, that’s right: we surf. Know what else? We welded together an 800-mile pipeline over mountains and rivers. We created an airline that is now the industry’s leader. We built small Native companies into mighty, international corporations. We’re Alaskans and we live at the top of the world. We roll up our sleeves, hitch up the dogs and go to work every day in places other people wouldn’t even visit. Think it’s all dudes? Think again. Laurie Fagnani started MSI Communications as a one-woman, one-client shop. Twenty years later, we’re the state’s premier full-service advertising agency, home to 25 of the most talented design ninjas and account jockeys in the business, responsible for shaping the public imaging of companies that have built Alaska into a recession-proof economy with one of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation. Yeah. We’re that MSI.

A 20-year love affair

“I didn’t start out 20 years ago with the goal of owning one of the largest, most creative agencies in town,” said agency founder Laurie Fagnani. “I started out with the goal of providing cutting-edge creative solutions that generate results. I just knew that if I built a great team and stuck to those goals, we would be successful. Sure enough, the agency has grown organically each and every year since we started.”

Under the name Marketing Solutions, the agency opened its doors in some very humble circumstances, with part-time office hours set up in Laurie’s home, which she shared with husband Matt and their first child. She had exactly zero employees, no office and only one client: Phillips Cruises and Tours. That was in 1995. The agency established a network of freelance creative professionals to create one of the first “virtual agencies” in the country.
