Lorem Ipsum Blah Blah Blah

Some people love it, some people hate it. In my opinion, you should generally have relevant content first and then add structure and styling, etc., but it just doesn’t always work out that way. Using filler text can give clients the feel of a finished page complete with text. It also allows you, as the designer, to get an accurate feel of the balance between white space and text/images, see the weight of the text on a page, and compared to other design elements. When I use filler text, I try to change it up a bit and maybe try something new. Here’s a list of some awesome dummy text generators to spruce up your mock-ups.

Samuel L. Lipsum

Is she dead, yes or no? Do you see any Teletubbies in here? Do you see a slender plastic tag clipped to my shirt with my name printed on it? Do you see a little Asian child with a blank expression on his face sitting outside on a mechanical helicopter that shakes when you put quarters in it? No? Well, that’s what you see at a toy store. And you must think you’re in a toy store, because you’re here shopping for an infant named Jeb.

Fillerati

Alice did not quite know what to say to this: so she helped herself to some tea and bread-and-butter, and then turned to the Dormouse, and repeated her question. ‘Why did they live at the bottom of a well?’ The Dormouse again took a minute or two to think about it, and then said, ‘It was a treacle-well.’ ‘There’s no such thing!’ Alice was beginning very angrily.

    I am definitely going to put these to use. I really hope a client doesn’t read some of these.

    These are awesome. Definitely more entertaining to read than Latin, or whatever Lorem Ipsum is.
