I am trying to design a beautiful map using Qgis. As I'm a software developer not a designer, I was hoping that this will be easy, but it isn't!
There is a similar question here Qgis tutorials and resources but I would like to focus from "applications using Qgis" to "designing a map using Qgis".
I was looking for some tools, style database or tutorials to guide me, but had no luck so far.
Also there is Quantumnik. It could be a great help, however it prints map on another tab and I need it to be on the same with my Qgis project.
So basically I am looking for a way to design a beautiful looking map using basic Qgis tools, any resources on that?
