# Merging banking and classic style in moderncv

Writing my CV in the moderncv package, I was caught between the classic style for the main body, and banking style for the header/title. I'm not sure how to merge the two formats. Also on the Banking Style header I would like to add an additional item for LinkedIn.

When looking through other questions I saw recommendations to add an MWE, but I'm not sure how to do this either seeing as I'm fairly new to using LaTeX. I can add it if someone can point me in the right direction.

Any help is appreciated.

• Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. A suggestion: Do us a favour and change your username to something more telling than "user1234". – Martin Schröder May 12 '14 at 0:42

You can take from moderncvstylebanking.sty the parts in charge of formatting the title and use them in your .tex file with the casual style; to add your LinkedIn information you can use \social[linkedin]{john.doe}:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}
\moderncvstyle{casual}
\moderncvcolor{blue}
\usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry}
