I've stepped onto the path of being an amateur RPG publisher via Kickstarter. I want to see how far I can travel from zero-to-hero and I'm looking for help along the way. These series of posts are in part just me thinking aloud, but also asking specific questions as I put the pieces together to achieve rpg publishing victory.

It's one thing to make some wacky title effects for a flyer with those pre-defined options in Word, however faced with trying to sell a compelling book I wonder, “what the heck am I supposed to do with the title?”

Part layout, part art... what do people do here if you want a professional look? I'd assume all of this could be handled by layout software such as the expensive Adobe Illustrator, is there a Scribus equivalent for Illustrator?

How many people hire artists?

What is the Deviant Art of graphic designers?

What kind of prices should one expect to pay for book title graphic design?

I always hired a graphic artist, depending on how much you need most will work with you for a minimum charge ($25 for a title). Now if you want a logo that may cost you more or they may charge by the hour of time work, it will help if you already have an idea in mind and can describe it well to them.
