There is actually a team of people who love to do that stuff... the
ubuntu-marketing team coordinates activities like this for every
release. A lot of the people on the art team are also part of that
team but you should probably discuss it there. I've seen posters for
the various releases in the past so there is probably already
something in development. They tend to be a very exuberant bunch who
love to creatively spread the word.
