My Favorite Ipsum Generators

When designing websites (or other pretty things), your client may not always have all of their copy ready to go. Sometimes they’re still working on it when they hire you and won’t be able to send all 100% before you start creating (if they do, send them flowers).

As you know, it’s kinda hard to design things without the content. Every now and then you’ll need to use filler text. It will help you and your client see how all of the elements will work together within the design.

The old standby for filler text is Loren Ipsum. This granddaddy has been used for centuries in print and now on the web (check the link for more interesting history on it).

If you’ve used Loren Ispum a lot it can get a little boring. And if you know me, you know I like to have fun while I work. Who doesn’t? That’s why I’m sharing some of the fun ipsums I’ve found and use. 🙂

  • Cupcake Ipsum (My favorite!)
    Sample: Lollipop jelly-o cupcake wafer candy. Cotton candy croissant chocolate bar ice cream. Cupcake danish liquorice gummi bears biscuit. Cheesecake topping soufflé caramels chocolate cake.
  • Keep Calm and Pommy Ipsum
    Sample: Pommy ipsum the lakes don’t get your knickers in a twist whizz get away with ya chuffed not some sort of dosshouse, bent as a nine bob note ey up duck a cracking earwig ey up duck oopsy-daisies.
  • Hipster Ipsum
    Sample: Umami Portland try-hard, pour-over Pinterest photo booth freegan viral literally kitsch McSweeney’s meh authentic roof party. Trust fund post-ironic meggings Blue Bottle letterpress before they sold out.

    Sample: Bacon ipsum dolor amet cow pork belly salami corned beef swine. Hamburger kevin ribeye cow, prosciutto rump pork belly. Swine tenderloin sausage salami frankfurter alcatra short ribs fatback boudin chuck beef ribs tri-tip pork loin shankle.
