Rachel Pynnonen, a friend and former colleague, asked for assistance with creating her Focusing Above Word Press blog site. After I researched several user-friendly Word Press templates, she chose one that she can easily manage and use to attract fellow bloggers.


She also asked me to design her logo for print and online purposes. I offered several choices, and she chose the modern, feminine logo above.

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.
