When designing anything with content (websites, brochures, etc.), if you don’t have the real content, using Lorem Ipsum is the most common way to fill those spaces.

However, for anyone who designs regularly and needs such filler text, it is pretty boring to use Lorem Ipsum again and again.

If you want to try an alternative to Lorem Ipsum, there are several web-based generators which are easy-to-use, customizable and, usually, fun. Check them out:

P.S. If you also want to complement placeholder text with images, I suggest checking 8 Free Placeholder Image Services For Instant Dummy Images.
