Have a look at these two - I like Scribus personally

Inkscape. Draw Freely. (http://www.inkscape.org/index.php?lang=en)

scribus.net | Scribus Open Source Desktop Publishing (http://www.scribus.net/)

Any vector (http://msauer.mvps.org/vector%20bitmap.htm) based program would probably be good for the purpose, Inkscape looks a capable program (I haven't tried Scribus). There other suitable programs but unfortunately they aren't free. If you just want the program for occasional use, or for a 'one-off' type of job, then the free (or low cost) programs might be the ones to go for. Serif have some free and low cost programs. Have a look at the titles at the top of this page (http://www.freeserifsoftware.com/software/pageplus/).

If you intend to turn out many posters/graphics and actually enjoy that kind of thing, you could consider buying a program. CorelDraw and Xara Xtreme (I've used both) would both be good for posters, menus and other graphics. Wonderful for text effects. Early versions of CorelDraw might be fairly inexpensive. There's a trial version of Xara Xtreme available.
