Articles of Style: 2014 Year in Review

December 31st, 2014

2014 was a busy year for Articles of Style. It was a year marked by change. We completed our new studio in Los Angeles, brought in a new team of intellectual studs, re-branded, developed a new website, brought back the Style Guide, shifted directions behind-the-scenes, and finally started production of our own clothing line (dropping in 2015, more on that later).

As I look back on this year I am so very thankful and grateful for all of the people who have helped make it happen. Alex Crawford for his continued faith and dedication, Pat Foley and Will Howe for helping us iron out our business strategies, Wes Dimagiba for holding it down in NYC, Karyn Bailey for her brilliant ideas and continued support, my family for their never-ending encouragement, all of the brands and advertisers we worked with, all of the incredible people we’ve partnered with and featured, and of course, our loyal readers & commenters who allow us to make it all happen; guys like Tim O’Hearn, Cam Rush, Christian McDuffy, Miguel Martinez, JoefromTexas…you know who you are, and we appreciate each of you.

2015 is sure to be another eventful year full of change as we launch e-commerce and get into video production. But before we get ahead of ourselves, I thought we’d take a look back at some of our highlights from the past year. Here are some of our favorite editorials, profiles, and style guides from 2014.
