How about an infographic about Design aspects of Debian?  I mean, 
correlations between Desktop Environment teams like pkg-gnome, pkg-kde 
and pkg-xfce, cross-desktop teams like debian-desktop, cross-desktop 
elements like widget-themes, icon-themes and audio-themes, 
special-purpose designs like boot animation and videoteam jingles, and 
meta designs like infographics.

...and I no doubt forgot a bunch.

Purpose of the design team is not to compete with any of the other more 
specific teams, but to help coordinate where to go in Debian with which 
design interests.  The design team could really use an infographic.

...and, I suspect, the very work on making such infographic would 
provoke questions on what really do exist in Debian - which would be a 
great discussion to have, here on this list.
