Those things would no doubt help make more people aware of Ubuntu
Studio, so that would be great.

In some cases it would be nice to have some ready to use artwork, some
html code for a logo link, perhaps?
Zak, who has been our art lead would no doubt do a good job on this. He
may be too busy to work on it now, hoping he may have more time later in
the development cycle.
Not absolutely needed of course, but it's nice when it looks good. If
anyone would like to take a shot at that, be my guest. Just tell me
first, and I'll direct you to relevant material.

We do have our own download page with information on how to create the
installer, with links to more detailed information on various subjects.
What I see is lacking is perhaps the part about booting the actually
installer. We don't mention UEFI at all. So, we could improve that page,
no doubt.
However, the more complicated that page becomes, the more reason to move
that information to a dedicated page. The original structure for a user
guide would include a section about installing Ubuntu Studio. Providing
videos would also be very good.
