How dfullerton started their book cover journey
The AP Physics C Companion
Dan Fullerton is a physics teacher at Irondequoit High School in Rochester, NY. He was named a New York State Master Physics Teacher, and is the creator and author of the APlusPhysics books and website.
The AP Physics C Companion is a guide book to help high school students with calculus-based physics.
High school students (11th/12th grade) and first/second year college students.
Book cover type
What colors do you want to see in your design?
Other color requirements
Choosing colors from the APlusPhysics logo (and/or the APlusPhysics.com website) to maintain a consistent theme is always appreciated, though I'm willing to entertain other ideas.
Bright, colorful, engaging for high school students. For examples, a quick search on Amazon.com for other books by Dan Fullerton will give an idea of past winners. Cartoon-ish, fun, bright are all great places to start. APlusPhysics.com logo should be somewhere on the front or back, and the Silly Beagle Productions logo should be somewhere on the back.
Design will need to have 3 separate output files (same basic design but very slightly different templates) for Createspace and Ingram Spark (1 CS version, 2 Ingram Spark with slightly different spine widths).
Book Chapters Include:
Momentum (Collisions & Explosions)
What to avoid
Bright, colorful, modern is a great way to go to catch the interest of high school students. If possible, text that remains editable in AI as opposed to outlines is preferred, but I understand if that's not achievable for various reasons.
