Bell On A Building

However, the most important thing in a site design is usability. Can a person come to this site and understand the message? Can they easily navigate the site without becoming confused? You’re far from alone. It can be tough to think of things to add, especially when you’re first starting out in the tech industry… Seguir leyendo Bell On A Building

Dramatically Monetize

So far he hasn't relocated where he once saw the passage, but the popularity of Cicero in the 15th century supports the theory that the filler text has been used for centuries. If you’re not sure where to start, you’re in luck. Listed below are 27 things you can add on your portfolio or online… Seguir leyendo Dramatically Monetize

Contrary To Popular Belief

Don’t bother typing “lorem ipsum” into Google translate. If you already tried, you may have gotten anything from “NATO” to “China”, depending on how you capitalized the letters. The bizarre translation was fodder for conspiracy theories, but Google has since updated its “lorem ipsum” translation to, boringly enough, “lorem ipsum”. One brave soul did take a… Seguir leyendo Contrary To Popular Belief

Make clear what you do and/or what you specialize in, since dev/design positions can vary so much. If you create WordPress websites for small businesses, say that.

Goods. & Miranda Skoczek

The placeholder text, beginning with the line “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit”, looks like Latin because in its youth, centuries ago, it was Latin. Richard McClintock, a Latin scholar from Hampden-Sydney College, is credited with discovering the source behind the ubiquitous filler text. In seeing a sample of lorem ipsum, his interest was piqued by consectetur—a genuine,… Seguir leyendo Goods. & Miranda Skoczek

So how did the classical Latin become so incoherent? According to McClintock, a 15th century typesetter likely scrambled part of Cicero’s De Finibus in order to provide placeholder text to mockup various fonts for a type specimen book. It’s difficult to find examples of lorem ipsum in use before Letraset made it popular as a dummy text in the… Seguir leyendo Business Consulting

Ipsum Dolor Ame Cetur

As an alternative theory, (and because Latin scholars do this sort of thing) someone tracked down a 1914 Latin edition of De Finibus which challenges McClintock’s 15th century claims and suggests that the dawn of lorem ipsum was as recent as the 20th century. The 1914 Loeb Classical Library Edition ran out of room on page 34 for the Latin… Seguir leyendo Ipsum Dolor Ame Cetur

How All This Mistaken Idea

One word of caution: make sure your client knows that Spain is filler text. You don’t want them wondering why you filled their website with a foreign language, and you certainly don’t want anyone prematurely publishing it. “But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing of a pleasure and praising pain was… Seguir leyendo How All This Mistaken Idea

And anyways, as Cecil Adams reasoned, “[Do you really] think graphic arts supply houses were hiring classics scholars in the 1960s?” Perhaps. But it seems reasonable to imagine that there was a version in use far before the age of Letraset. Etiam ultricies nisi vel augue. Morbi ac felis. Etiam imperdiet imperdiet orci.
