This is a really good idea. I think it should extend to Ubuntu-UK 
marketing material in general as we really don't have any  at the moment.

If this is of interest maybe someone could setup a wiki page for people 
to suggest designs, submit designs, mock ups etc of leaflets and posters 
and any other marketing material that would be useful.
