# Create a custom title

I have to create a report that contains:

• Date
• Group (number)
• Authors (two)
• Title
• Assistant name

What is the best way to do this with an article (scrartcl) in classicthesis? I need that all this stuff don't take a lot of space, but I want a good typographical result. I tried with \\ on \title{} but I wasn't able to obtain a good result.

\documentclass[%
10pt,%
a4paper,%
onside,%
footinclude,%
BCOR5mm,%
{scrartcl}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage[%
nochapters,%
beramono,%
eulermath,%
pdfspacing,%
listings]%
{classicthesis}

\author{Authors}
\title{Title}
\date{Date}

% Where to put group number and assistant name??

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\end{document}

EDIT: For example, if I use

\authors{myname \and otherautor \\ assistantname}

assistantname will be placed under otherautor and not centered on the page...

Can you please explain how do you mix two classes: scrartcl and classicthesis? I think a M(n)WE is needed here. –  yo' Sep 30 '12 at 13:04
@tohecz scrartcl is the class, classicthesis is a package. What is a M(n)WE? –  R. M. Sep 30 '12 at 13:08

Take a look at page 59 in the English manual, There you will find descriptions of different additional title commands.

For example, you can put the group number at the top of the page by using \titlehead, and the assistant’s name by using \publishers. If you want the assistant’s name centred under two author names, you can ‘cheat’ by using the the \date-command, i.e.:

\author{Author \and Author}
\date{\small Assistant: John Doe \\[2ex]%
\large Date}

Here is a MWE, cheating with the \date-and \publishers:

\documentclass[%
10pt,%
a4paper,%
onside,%
footinclude,%
BCOR5mm,%
{scrartcl}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage[%
nochapters,%
beramono,%
eulermath,%
pdfspacing,%
listings]%
{classicthesis}

\author{Author \and Author}
\title{Title}
\date{\small Group Number: SS~2002 \\[1ex] \large Date}
\publishers{\medskip\small Assistant: John Doe}
% Where to put group number and assistant name??

\begin{document}

Thank you. The publisher is a good solution. I would like to place the group number under authors names (centered)... It is possible? –  R. M. Sep 30 '12 at 15:47
@R.M. See my updated MWE and example. –  Sveinung Sep 30 '12 at 17:42
