Setting text in Lorem Ipsum makes good typesetting kind of impossible.

I think this advice might be the most underrated and I rarely hear it raised in front-end, typography, or design groups. I’ve even noticed seasoned designers struggle to typeset a page because Lorem Ipsum is used for the placeholder content, which makes it impossible for to gauge whether a paragraph of text is easy to read or not.

Instead, pick text that you really enjoy reading. Ideally, typesetting would be done with finalized content but that’s often a luxury in front-end development. That’s why I’d recommend picking text that sounds close to the voice and tone of the project if there’s a lack of actual content.

It’s this constant push and pull between systematic design thinking, but also organic and expressive design thinking.

Seriously though, this one change will have an enormous impact on legibility and hierarchy because it encourages reading the text instead of looking at it all aesthetically. I noticed a massive improvement in my own designs when I stopped using undecipherable Lorem Ipsum text and picked content from my favorite novels instead.

  1. I started painting as a hobby when I was little. I didn’t know I had any talent. I believe talent is just a pursued interest. Anybody can do what I do. Just go back and put one little more happy tree in there.
