I am rewriting my CV in LaTeX using moderncv and prefer the look of the phone/social icons from the casual style but the layout of the classic style. How do I use the casual icons in the classic style?

1 Answer 1


The style casual of class moderncv uses the command \moderncvicons{awesome} to load the symbols you prefer with font fontawesome, style classic you prefer uses command \moderncvicons{marvosym}.

So simply add command \moderncvicons{awesome} in your preamble after calling style classic!

See the following MWE


\moderncvstyle{classic} % casual, classic, banking, oldstyle and fancy

\moderncvicons{awesome} % <============== to get symbols of style casual


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




\cventry{year--year}{Degree}{Institution--3}{City--4}{\textit{Grade}--5}{Description--6}  % arguments 3 to 6 can be left empty

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


and its result

resulting pdf with font awesome
