AltaCV, yet another LaTeX CV/Résumé class

v1.1.2 (1 February 2017), by LianTze Lim (

(Thanks to Nur for the name.)

It all started with this:

Leonardo was talking about a résumé of Marissa Mayer that Business Insider put together using I knew I had to do something about it. And so AltaCV was born.


This is how the re-created résumé looks like (view/open on Overleaf):

Though if you're creating your own CV/résumé, you'd probably prefer using the basic template (view/open on Overleaf):

Requirements and Compilation

  • pdflatex + biber + pdflatex
  • AltaCV uses fontawesome and academicons; they're included in both TeX Live 2016 and MikTeX 2.9.
  • Loading academicons is optional: enable it by adding the academicons option to \documentclass.
  • Can now be compiled with pdflatex, XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX!
  • However if you're using academicons, you must use either XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX. If the doc then compiles but the icons don't show up in the output PDF, try compiling with LuaLaTeX instead.
  • The samples here use the Lato font.
