Meet Jeffsum Ipsum, The Best Lorem Ipsum Alternative?

Lorem ipsum dolor est…

We all know this common phrase. A line of dummy text made up of incoherent Latin gibberish frequently used by designers and developers as placeholder text in their projects. Lorem ipsum is so popular that even non-designers know what it is, and when something gets that famous, it becomes just as overused. As a part of my journey to find alternatives for the infamous lorem ipsum, I’ve tried several options such as Catsum Ipsum, and Hipster Ipsum.

Introducing Jeffsum Ipsum

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find one that read like an original sentence and was practical rather than gimmicky. That’s where Jeffum Ipsum comes in. It’s a pretty straightforward tool based around a straightforward shtick; sharing the Jeff Goldblum awesomeness with the world, one mockup at a time. Jeffsum Ipsum’s creator is Se├ín Halpin, a designer and creator of other web applications like browso.app.

How to use Jeffsum Ipsum

To use the tool, just enter the number of paragraphs you want and hit “receive the Jeff” to generate your copy. The best part is that the text is in English and makes it a lot easier for clients to understand that it is just placeholder and not try to decipher what Lorem Ipsum means.
