I am preparing my CV with moderncv and chose the casual style. Now, I would like to omit the icons for phone, email etc. How do I do this? Thank you very much in advance!


You just have the redefine the several symbols to be empty. For example for the adress symbol you use:


For all symbols (choose that one you need, comment the others) see the following MWE (after personal datas you find the redefinition of the symbols):


% moderncv themes

% character encoding

% adjust the page margins

% personal data
\title{Resumé title}
\address{street and number}{postcode city}{country}
\extrainfo{additional information}  
\quote{Some quote}                  


\renewcommand*{\addresssymbol}{} % <=====================================
\renewcommand*{\githubsocialsymbol}{} % <================================




\section{Master thesis}
\cvitem{description}{Short thesis abstract}



and the result:

personal data only

  • Note that in recent versions, the call is \mobilesymbol, not \mobilephonesymbol. – Richard Sep 23 '16 at 15:06
