[ubuntu-uk] Leaflets

Ah, Web 2.0 formatting!

Seriously though, nice one Matt and I agree with Alan.

To re-iterate one point though, think of it being printed grey scale, and
also aim to keep contrasts high between text and background.  There's
nothing worse than getting to the juicy bit of a leaflet to find that the
text and background colours are so close together that it's a real struggle
to read.

Nice. I love the fact that this is a real collaborative effort. With
input from multiple community members.

For your version I find the contrast between the black text and dark
green background hard to read. Personally I am not a fan of the curvy
rectangles round text (as also used in ubuntumagazine incidentally) but
that may be just personal preference. It makes the whole thing a bit
"busy" in my book.
