101 essential lorem ipsum generators

By Paddi MacDonnell | Resources | Aug 27, 2013

Designers often find themselves in a chicken-egg situation when it comes to content: you need the content to design, but the client wants to write content for finished designs. This is where placeholder text comes in.

Since the 1500s the role of placeholder text has been played by a passage from Cicero’s — yes, he whose hands ended up nailed to the door of the senate — ‘The Extremes of Good and Evil’, better known by its opening two words: Lorem ipsum.

However, recently usability experts have questioned the value of dummy text, arguing that meaningless words are treated differently by our eyes than passages of real text, that our brains attempt to parse into words and phrases. Furthermore, designers themselves are increasingly questioning the value of text you can’t read when readability is one of the key aims of typographic  design.

The issue of course stems from the fact that in the 16th century, a substantial percentage of the printed material was written in Latin, and thus indistinguishable from Cicero’s text. Even 100 years ago, the educated classes were expected to have a passable grasp of Latin.

With the exception of doctors and lawyers, most of us don’t read Latin any longer. That means we need dummy text in the same language as the final content, fortunately there’s a lot to choose from:

 

Serious Latin

Lorem Ipsum

www.lipsum.com

Lorem ipsum claims to be the original ipsum site, so as good a place as any to start. Provides some interesting background to lorem ipsum, including translations of the original text by Cicero.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Proin diam justo, scelerisque non felis porta, placerat vestibulum nisi. Vestibulum ac elementum massa. In rutrum quis risus quis sollicitudin. Pellentesque non eros ante. Vestibulum sed tristique massa. Quisque et feugiat risus, eu tristique felis. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Nulla facilisi. Pellentesque varius ipsum in urna semper volutpat.

Super Ipsum

super-ipsum.com

The creator of this particular ipsum has chosen a Latin translation of the Book of Job as a source. Perhaps to remind us that even the worst client is still not as bad as being swallowed by a whale.

Super ipsum sonabit pharetra, micat hasta et acinaces. Fervens et fremens sorbet terram nec consistet, cum tubae sonaverit clangor. Ubi audierit bucinam, dicit: Uah! Procul odoratur bellum, exhortationem ducum et ululatum exercitus. Numquid per sapientiam tuam plumescit accipiter, expandens alas suas ad austrum. Numquid ad praeceptum tuum elevabitur aquila et in arduis ponet nidum suum. In petris manet et in praeruptis silicibus commoratur atque in culmine et arce. Inde contemplatur escam, et de longe oculi eius prospiciunt. Pulli eius lambent sanguinem; et, ubicumque cadaver fuerit, statim adest.

And Ahab, he too was standing on his quarter-deck, shaggy and black, with a stubborn gloom; and as the two ships crossed each other’s wakes – one all jubilations for things passed, the other all forebodings as to things to come – their two captains in themselves impersonated the whole striking contrast of the scene. “Come aboard, come aboard!” cried the gay Bachelor’s commander, lifting a glass and a bottle in the air. “Hast seen the White Whale?” gritted Ahab in reply. “No; only heard of him; but don’t believe in him at all,” said the other good-humoredly. “Come aboard!” “Thou art too damned jolly. Sail on. Hast lost any men?” “Not enough to speak of – two islanders, that’s all – but come aboard, old hearty, come along.

It is time to develop a big ‘US’, rather than the old ‘us and them’ that lets us to exploit and bully others on a personal level, and on an international level to wage war. The East must see the West as part of ‘US’ and the North must come to feel that the South is part of ‘US’. We should include the entire world in our concern, wishing all humanity well. If we can do that there will be no room for hatred, thinking of others as enemies. And we will achieve this through education, not through prayer.

Obama Ipsum

The requested number of paragraphs are collated from various speeches given by President Obama.

That is true genius of this nation. But I will also go through the federal budget, line by line, eliminating programs that no longer work and making the ones we do need work better and cost less – because we cannot meet twenty-first century challenges with a twentieth century bureaucracy. All of us share this world for but a brief moment in time. The question is whether we spend that time focused on what pushes us apart, or whether we commit ourselves to an effort – a sustained effort – to find common ground, to focus on the future we seek for our children, and to respect the dignity of all human beings.

With over a hundred word list topics to choose from, some more tasteful than others, this could create some intriguing text. The sample here is Seinfeld episodes.

The pony remark the revenge the heart attack the pen the parking garage the suicide the good samaritan the virgin the outing the non-fat yogurt the conversion the stand-in the jimmy the fusilli jerry the engagement the maestro the secret code the seven the butter shave the strong box the wizard the maid. The seinfeld chronicles the statue the café the keys the pitch the outing the old man the puffy shirt the stand-in the kiss hello the engagement the shower head the bizarro jerry the susie the serenity now the maid the finale (part 2).

Ipsum Generator

Judging by the options, this one appears to have been built by a French speaking, Manga loving connoisseur of Scandinavian beverages.

Postmodern Ipsum

www.elsewhere.org/pomo

Creates a nonsense essay, hard to distinguish from some real ones.

“Class is unattainable,” says Foucault; however, according to Long[1] , it is not so much class that is unattainable, but rather the failure, and some would say the dialectic, of class. However, Debord uses the term ‘semioticist subcultural theory’ to denote not, in fact, appropriation, but neoappropriation. The primary theme of the works of Gaiman is the difference between sexual identity and truth. But Marx suggests the use of pretextual discourse to analyse class.

 

 

If nothing on this list satisfies your lorem ipsum needs you might try some of these: Tweepsum, a test twitter feed of lorem ipsum; LittleIpsum, an OSX app that lives on the menu bar; Lorem Ipsum Post Generator, a WordPress plugin that creates dummy posts; WP Dummy Content, another WordPress plugin that will create pages and posts, which are easily deleted when no longer needed; j-HTML Ipsum, a jQuery plugin — removing the plugin when you’re finished with it removes the text it has created; Lorem.io, another jQuery plugin; Lorem Ipsum Generator, a Chrome extension; Dummy Lipsum, a Firefox add-on from lipsum.com.

As a last resort why not make your own? PHP Lorem Ipsum is a php script to make your own ipsum generator. There are hundreds of great possibilites yet to be made: Goonie Ipsum, 24 Ipsum, Deep Space Ipsum, Jaws Ipsum, Twin Peaksum.

    umm..it was Jonah that was “swallowed by a whale.” Job suffered the loss of his wealth, children, had boils all over his body, had a bunch of miserable friends to keep him company, and a wife that told him just to, “..curse God and die.”

    Come to think of it, that’s not entirely unlike working as a designer. ;)

    When mocking up our site we had a need for some Ipsum style placeholder, but really fancied something to do with the automotive industry – plenty of Ipsum generators out there for pop culture stuff, but nothing to do with cars! So we built our own. http://www.capitalreg.co.uk/car-ipsum.html
