What the heck is Lorem Ipsum?

Let’s not write “CONTENT GOES HERE” all over a design 🙂

Many times as a designer starts the creative process we need have content / text / copywriting completed but more often than not the client needs time to develop the final written content to include in a design piece. As a result designers often need “filler text” to start the layout process. Rather than writing out 100’s of times “CONTENT GOES HERE” Lorem Ipsum gives us a way to fill up the design sections with text that looks real but doesn’t mean anything.

Lorem Ipsum is a placeholder text commonly used in the design and typesetting industry. It’s a dummy text that is used to demonstrate the visual effects of different typefaces and layouts, and serves as a placeholder for the final copy.

Lorem Ipsum is derived from Latin. The text is a scrambled version of a passage from a Latin work by the classical author and philosopher Cicero. The words have been rearranged to create a text that resembles Latin, but has no meaning. The use of Lorem Ipsum as placeholder text has become a common practice in the design and typesetting industry, and it is widely recognized as a standard placeholder text.

It’s used in many design applications including but not limited to:

  1. Printing and typesetting industry
  2. Web design and development
  3. Graphic design and layout
  4. Advertising and marketing materials
  5. Office documents and templates
  6. Books and magazines
  7. User interfaces and wireframes.

It has become many designers best friend. It allows us to quickly generate a certain number of lines, bullets, paragraphs, or headlines to get a headstart on those layouts for our amazing clients while they figure out what they are truly going to say with their next piece of collateral 🙂
