Philip Demosthenes ’73

Philip Demosthenes ’73 writes, “The short-lived School of Design, where I spent four years, produced many successful graduates. We had progressive thinkers and educators for studies in social systems; architecture; urban planning; human factors; environmental studies; industrial and graphic design; environmental ethics; critical thinking; and problem solving. With this rich and diverse educational experience, I proceeded into environmental analysis and advanced into a mix of transportation planning and safety strategies; human factors and roadway design; regulatory law and procedures; transportation research and roadway safety with cultural, pragmatic, and ethical analysis. I have provided consulting services to more than 25 states and four counties, I am a member of three standing committees with the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies of Sciences; I teach, and I’ll continue to do consulting work because I enjoy what I do. I thank CalArts and my teachers for setting me on this path.”
