I'm helping a friend with LaTeX to make her a CV that looks very nice using the Friggeri CV template. I'm experienced with it but not with Tikz, which is used to make the black header at the beginning with the name, and a short personal statement.

I would like to write this statement over two lines. I used "multilines" to do so, but 1) the second line seems to be not centered 2) I can't manage to fit everything in the header, and I don't want to increase its height.

The solution would be to move the name above, and reduce the margins. Does someone know how to do this? Attached is a MWE as well as the CLS class file here : https://github.com/oroce/cv/blob/master/friggeri-cv.cls

Thank you very much.

  • By multilines do you mean the command you defined called manylines, which is defined as a flushleft single-column tabular? How should that be centred? – jon Mar 13 '16 at 1:51

Ah, the original CV. And license also still there. Very good.

Since you don't want to change the height of that box, you have to either make the fontsize smaller, or just reduce the line spacing a bit.

I decided to do the last one. Add the following into your preamble.

    \begin{tabular}[t]{@{}c@{}}#1\end{tabular}% this is now centered
