Coconut BAM Productions
Digital Designs & More
Coconut BAM Productions has been a dream of mine for many years. It’s exciting that I’m finally well into the transition process of my retirement from the public-school system in June of 2017 to becoming a web and graphic designer. My full-circle professional life is back to where I began – public relations and marketing then to being a public-school teacher, reading coach, intervention support specialist and now back to public relations and marketing – this time as a digital designer.
The skills I’ve learned and used throughout my professions are interrelated and remain consistent. Regardless of my formal job description:
I’ve always had a desire to help others.
I’ve always been an educator.
I’ve always had a passion for research and creativity.
Continuing my creative passions are now through web and graphic design. If I don't know how to do something, I research the tasks using standards-based literature. I then collaboratively work with my team toward actions-based solutions. In addition to web design and developing marketing tools, my services also include instruction in helping my clients:
Access and navigate the internet.
Effectively use the Microsoft Office products (e.g., Word, Excel, Power Point, Outlook) and other software.
Manage a smartphone, tablet and/or personal computer.
In the meantime, please enjoy my portfolio – my latest web design.

Versatility is my strength and passion.
Finally – My Next Chapter!
Welcome and thank you for visiting my web and digital design portfolio. I’m Beth (Beth A. Maxwell – BAM), and I’m glad you’re here!
Many great things have happened for me in the last couple of years. My dreams to become a graphic designer are now a reality. After almost 28 years as a public-school educator (two master’s degrees in education and 24 years in two school districts), I was blessed with the opportunity to become a full-time student. During my recent semi-retirement in Naples, Florida, I studied digital design software to enhance my skills and to transition to my next, professional chapter. Even more exciting – I’m looking forward to combining my journalism and communication skills from my first degree with my graphic design passion to help you promote your passions.
When you’re ready to talk about a new website or your plans to revise your current site, graphic design ideas or if you need help with understanding/using technology, please contact me.
I’m looking forward to collaborating with you.
