The random fun of Lorem Ipsum Generators

by Aug 10, 2018

As a builder of websites and creator of online media, I often find myself requiring placeholder text for my mockups. The industry standard that is used in typesetting and has been for many centuries is called Lorem Ipsum; in fact, it can be dated back to an ancient text The Extremes of Good and Evil by Cicero.

But it is boring! Everyone uses it, and its use is over four centuries old. Thankfully, some talented and creative people on the web have decided to give Lorem Ipsum an update. I use some of these updated Ipsum Generators in my day-to-day design work and thought it would be fun to share some with you for your creative projects, or just when you need to fill a page with words but have nothing to say.

So below are links to some of my fave Ipsum Generators, with included random-generated text for you to have a taste of what the Ipsum Generators can do.
