I have created a CV using Plasmati Graduate CV, and I would like to implement a title that is similar, if not identical, to the (reveresed) moderncv template. Namely, the name of the left hand side, a light underline crossing over to the right, and an image on the right hand side. If it possible to set the private name with a lighter color, that would be also great. See the figure for the target title.

enter image description here

The current title look like the following figure (the title is in green), and is generated by the code

\par{\centering{\Huge John \textsc{Smith}}\bigskip\par}  

enter image description here

Unfortunately, I cannot provide a simple MWE for the desired title as all the magic is done within the associated moderncv template file. So essentially, my question is: how to make the title look like the reverse red boxed title? Can anyone please instruct me how to do so?

Obviously, I added to color box to show the desired title, they are not part of the output PDF.

You can just set the title yourself using some colour choices.

Below is your Plasmati Graduate CV template with the necessary title changes. I've also added the graphicx package to allow for the inclusion of an image.
