Hi Sergio

Look at inkscape as a post-QGIS labelling and map tweaking system if you
need vector work and typography: https://inkscape.org/

GIMP is for image processing grunt (like Adobe photoshop):

Both are excellent tools for professional print production.

Searching 'QGIS and inkscape' there are many tutorials :)
