Lorem Ipsum Dummy text is for dummies. Stop relying so much on lorem ipsum. »

Picture this: a beautiful design concept with a clear visual hierarchy and perfectly intuitive navigation. Everything looks great, and you’re congratulating yourself already on the most excellent partnership that you’ve developed with your designers. But as you begin to read the content on the page, you realize something’s off: It’s all dummy text! And as a client, this should throw up a red flag for you. When designers use lorem ipsum to fill content, it means that they don’t know what the real content should be. And that’s actually a really big problem.
