I need to recreate this in LaTeX:

three-column section

The rest of the page is "normal", i.e. no division into columns. I have both images as separate files. What would you suggest? Thanks.

There are many ways of doing the above. The following in my opinion provides better control over layouts.






    \LARGE {\itshape Accidental computational linguist}\\ 

    de facto web developer\\

    {\bfseries aspiring super user}



Here is the result.

Definitely you will want to tweak with the minipage widths and their placement options ([c][b][t]), font selections, text line gaps, and other similar issues, but I am sure you can figure that out.

Is there any benefits to using \pgfimage over \includegraphics? – Torbjørn T. Sep 13 '13 at 6:03
@TorbjørnT. None that I am aware of. I have the personal habit of using \pgfimage, since I use Beamer a lot. But any user may want to use \includegraphics if one opts to. – Masroor Sep 13 '13 at 6:08
Fantastic, thanks @MMA – John J. Camilleri Sep 13 '13 at 6:43
