There were some who anticipated the dawn of 2000 without trepidation, and Frank Weidemann must have been one of them. His poster for the New Year's Eve concert at the Warfield featured Lepidopterae drawn to the collective drumbeat of the planet, a reference to Mickey Hart's experimentation with world-beats in Planet Drum.
Frank Wiedemann's accomplishments include a dizzying list of projects: web page design, logos, business cards, book covers, wine labels, posters, product photography and T-shirts. Educated at the Rhode Island School of Design, Wiedemann has been a freelance graphic artist in the Bay Area since 1987. He has designed for Bill Graham Presents since the late 1990s, and his posters reflect the breadth of his talent in their various moods, lettering and artistic styles.
