In my experience it takes time to develop a good graphic design
(here: log-in screen / default wallpaper).

So just in case this has not been done already, briefing the designers now
would not be wrong. There's enough information available now to give them an
idea of what Leap is about.

That way they would have enough time to come up with a good draft.

And a better one if the first one goes up in flames. ;)

There is a graphic design team for openSUSE.

My initial brainstorm idea is to show someone leaping from 13.2 to 42.1

Maybe 13.2 would be represented by a collection of boulders. Possibly
42.1 would be represented by something like:

http://climb-utah.com/Moab/Files/delicate01.jpg (From
http://climb-utah.com/Moab/delicate.htm)

Notice the solid stone base with an arch above it. At the top of the
arch it appears to have a very stable landing place.

One could overlay "SLES 12" on top of the solid rock base, and
"Tumbleweed" over the arch. The end result is a stable place to land.

In my mind there are tons of interesting ways to represent Leap.

We have some branding guidelines here https://opensuse.github.io/branding-guidelines/ so whatever we come up with should fit with that, it also needs to be easy for designers to work with, in a lot of cases the kde / gtk / enlightenment themes get tweeked a bit to make them fit with whatever is selected and currently they mostly should follow those guidelines, I say should here as I have no idea how much they do.

Cheers
