# Package for more creative text formatting in latex

What is a reasonable package to be used for realizing something like the following example (including image altered):

You're going to want to look into TikZ. As it stands unfortunately, this question airs more on the side of 'do it for me' instead of 'how can I solve this specific problem. –  Sean Allred Mar 16 at 17:04
Maybe look at flowfram, too. Note that questions which just post an image and ask for a solution are not really reasonable for this site, though you may be lucky if somebody is sufficiently intrigued. To increase the chances of receiving useful advice, please post a Minimal (non-)Working Example which at least shows what you have tried or gives the basics of the content you want included. That makes it a lot easier for people to help and demonstrates that you have made some effort to solve the problem yourself. Also, please read the question back and edit accordingly (different what?). –  cfr Mar 16 at 17:07
Pleasedon't reveal personal information without the consent of the actualowner of that info. –  percusse Mar 16 at 17:31
Thx, but Mustermann is german for "anyone" dict.cc/?s=Max+Mustermann –  Marc Palm Mar 16 at 17:42
@percusse The name "Mustermann" and the address "Musterweg" is something like the english "John Doe". –  Henri Menke Mar 16 at 17:42

Procrastination team, represent!

This is just too easy with TikZ ;-)

Now with correct colors, correct font and the code matches the picture. You will need to use xelatex or lualatex to typeset.

wow! Tikz is just like inDesign now (but better because one can do math with it). very nice. I am going to learn Tikz once someone puts a GUI front end to it :) –  Nasser Mar 16 at 17:45
Amazing, thank you for realizing the specific example. I wouldn't have dare to ask for, but I am really impressed. –  Marc Palm Mar 16 at 17:46
Wrong colours. ;-) (In other words, one upvote is mine.) –  Speravir Mar 16 at 17:50
Does the mwe package provide this Martina pic? I can't see why you included the package. (Or the image doesn't match the code.) –  NVaughan Mar 16 at 17:54
@Nasser If you look for a TikZ GUI, you might be interested in KTikZ/QTikZ. Maybe you also want to have a look at this question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/24235/… –  Henri Menke Mar 17 at 7:56

Just for fun:

\documentclass[tikz]{standalone}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\gdef\shift{0}
\foreach \x in {1,...,100}{
\pgfmathsetmacro\r{random(0,5)}
\xdef\shift{\shift,\r}
}
\foreach \sh in {0,...,5}{
\gdef\rec{0}
\foreach \s [count=\c] in \shift { \ifnum\s=\sh \xdef\rec{\rec,\c} \fi }
\begin{scope}
\clip \foreach \x in \rec {(0, \x pt) rectangle ++(110pt,1pt)};
\node[anchor=south west] at (\sh pt,0)
{\includegraphics[width=100pt,height=100pt]{example-image-a}};
\end{scope}
}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}
