Lorem Ipsum – dummy texts for web and graphic design

This series is a project inspired by @dickiebush’s "Ship 30 for 30” Atomic Essays. Which, I commit to spend 30 minutes a day for 30 days straight to write a short essay about software development tools that I love. My goal is to build my daily writing habit and connect to more people. Check out #ship30for30 on Twitter.

Lorem Ipsum seems to play such a small role in the design, web development and publishing world, but is a brilliant idea that speeds up our workflow.

Here’s an example of how we can use Lorem Ipsum in a design process:

Alt TextA use case of Lorem Ipsum in WordPress Theme (

Lorem Ipsum is dummy text that we can use for typesetting while designing layout for digital or physical published work. The image above shows a WordPress theme on a theme page with Lorem Ipsum texts. The texts demonstrate how the page looks like when having them on its layout.

I remember the time when making a prototype of a webpage without knowing about Lorem Ipsum. I put in words like ‘content here’, ‘subtitle here’, or ‘bla bla bla’, which were distracting and unprofessional.

We can generate several kinds of texts from Lorem Ipsum. By going to its website, scroll down a little to the topic ‘Where can I get some?’. Right underneath that topic, there are options you can choose, whether you want some texts as paragraphs, words, bytes, or lists. Then click ‘Generate Lorem Ipsum’. After that, you can copy the generated texts all you want and paste in your work. You can even generate some mock banners as well.

Have you learned about Lorem Ipsum before? Any friends who don’t know about this? Share this post to them to help with their workflow and make their design demo look good!

I would much prefer to never use dummy text.

I use it in quick CodePen prototypes maybe... but in real client projects - if there's dummy text, it usually means that the content strategy - and the general plan is not solid. There certainly are some funny lorems though!

Thanks for these resources, they are very helpful. Although lately I have been very busy with other tasks. I recently finished capstone project nursing that was fraught with difficulties. For me, the ideal approach was to use help of writing service. This allowed me to finish my task on time and even gain great comments from my teacher.

Lorem Ipsum is a valuable tool for designers, making layout creation smoother. I've had similar experiences when crafting web prototypes. It's incredible how Lorem Ipsum eliminates distraction and enhances professionalism. If you're in technical writing, just as designers have Lorem Ipsum, engineers have CDR report help for their Competency Demonstration Reports. It's a lifeline for engineers seeking successful skill assessments in Australia. The options and assistance it provides are akin to what Lorem Ipsum offers to designers – clarity and efficiency in presenting one's work.

We appreciate you making these materials available to us. I apologize for the delay, but I've been swamped with work as of late. My nursing capstone project, which I just finished, was challenging in many ways. The employment of a professional writing service was the best option for me coreball. Because of this, I was able to complete the assignment on time and receive praise from my instructor.

There are some things to look for when choosing the best writing services online. The first thing to look for is the level of customer satisfaction. A legitimate writing service should not only produce quality papers on time but also satisfy all of the requirements of their clients. For this, they must be a legitimate platform that provides their services. This way, you can be sure that you are not wasting your time on subpar services. Besides, these writing services also provide students with a welcome respite from the pressure of school work, which they are already under. Moreover, they must produce unique papers within the shortest possible time frame.
