Cover Letter with Short Stylish Cover Letter

I am using this template for the cover letter: http://www.latextemplates.com/template/short-stylish-cover-letter

I would like to understand of to put more space between the title and the line in which there is my name and address.

Thanks a lot, Fab.

First of all, i have to say that i do not recommend using the templated linked in the question. It uses obsolete options and does really weird stuff most of the time.

The firsthead is set within a parbox, so the same rules and mechanisms as in every other LaTeX document apply.

I cleaned the code up a little bit:

\documentclass[symbolicnames]{scrlttr2}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\setkomavar{fromname}{John Smith}
\setkomavar{fromphone}{(000) 111-1111}
\setkomavar{fromemail}{john@smith.com}
\setkomavar{signature}{John Smith}
\setkomavar{subject}{Cover Letter}

\centering{\Huge\scshape\usekomavar{fromname}\par%
%   \vspace{1em}%<- apply space as needed
}%
{\Large\scshape Application\par}%
}

\setkomavar{firstfoot}{\centering
{%
\renewcommand{\\}{~{\large\textperiodcentered}~}%
}\\%
}

\begin{document}

\begin{letter}{%
HR Dept. --- Corporation\\%
123 Pleasant Lane\\%
12345 City, State%
}

\opening{Dear Recruiter,}
\blindtext[2]

\blindtext

\blindtext[3]
\closing{See you on monday}

\end{letter}
\end{document}
