Lorem Ipsum Text

Today I wanted to talk about a topic that is pretty much a staple in the world of web designLorem Ipsum text. If you’ve ever worked on a website design, chances are you’ve come across this funny-looking dummy text.

For those of you who are unfamiliar, Lorem Ipsum is a type of dummy text used as a placeholder in web design. It’s essentially a bunch of random Latin words and phrases that are used to give an idea of what the content will look like on a page without actually having to use real text.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Sed egestas feugiat enim. Aenean in arcu sed nibh posuere vehicula quis ac dui. Donec ut efficitur nisi, blandit consectetur libero. Duis tincidunt est et felis maximus, ac luctus libero elementum. Curabitur eget ullamcorper lorem. Phasellus accumsan ut elit ut euismod. Integer tincidunt gravida fermentum.

This is an example of Lorem ipsum

So why do designers use it instead of actual text? Well, for starters, it’s a lot faster to throw in some dummy text than it is to come up with real content for a design. Plus, it doesn’t distract the designer or client from the design itself – they can focus on how the text will look and fit within the design, without getting sidetracked by the actual content.

However, just because it’s dummy text doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be used effectively. Here are a few tips on how to use it in your web designs:

  1. Keep the amount of text consistent – If you’re using Lorem Ipsum on one page, make sure to use it on all pages in the same way. This will give a better idea of how the text will look in the final design.
  2. Use different lengths of text – Not all pages on a website will have the same amount of text. Use different lengths of Lorem Ipsum on different pages to give a better idea of how text will look in those areas.
  3. Use different variations of Lorem Ipsum – There are a ton of variations of it out there. Using different variations will give your design a bit more variety and make it look less repetitive.

Lorem Ipsum Text Generators

There are plenty of free Lorem Ipsum generators out there, and some even allow you to customize the amount of text and the type of Lorem Ipsum you’d like to use. Some popular options include lipsum.com, blindtextgenerator.com, and loremipsum.io.

We personally use lipsum.com here at FunkPd, but we’re always open to exploring other options and even creating our own generator if this page gains traction. It’s all about making the design process as smooth and efficient as possible.

I don’t have a more suitable video to include in this space at the moment. I am merely experimenting and trying out various options.



Lorem Ipsum is a valuable tool in the web design process, but it’s important to use it effectively. By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your dummy text will serve its purpose without detracting from the overall design.
