Feature idea: Define default template or "corporate design contents"

1. What you want to be able to do in MURAL

Currently, when someone creates a new mural from scratch, there might be no corporate design rules kept, e.g. no logo, no company name, no disclaimer, no company colors etc.

Therefore I'd like to be able to define per workspace (or company account) to set a default (custom) template (of our company) to be used when someone wants to create a blank template to make sure the most basic "assets" are in every new mural (e.g. logo and company name).

Currently it's possible to create completely blank murals. Yes, we could ask people to use our company-custom mural template(s) as their starting points, but they're still able to create completely blank murals without those assets. Due to design and maybe even legal reasons, it would be great to define a default template that is automatically used when someone clicks on "create new mural" and does not choose another template explicitly.

Alternative: Define a png image and upload it to mural's backend that would automatically be inserted into every newly created mural. E.g. this could be a banner or a logo or a disclaimer as a graphic in PNG format or so. But I'm not sure if I wouldn't prefer the other solution with the default template.

2. The problem you are trying to solve

We as a company would like to create murals in a consistent and coherent design. Thus we'd like to make it as easy as possible to follow those designs without thinking or manual efforts.

3. Why this helps everyone (or many people)

It would make it easier to get started with a very basic template without looking for it in the pool of ours and of mural's pre-defined templates.
