Making a better Lorem Ipsum

Business & Tech, Designs, Projects
We are fans of Lorem Ipsum here at Collective Network.

HUGE fans like most of the people that use it. It is a great way to add some copy to quickly visualise a design during its initial stages.

The problem with Lorem Ipsum is that its value diminishes after those initial iterations when both client and designer have refined their work. What is actually required after this point is a better Lorem Ipsum.

A lorem ipsum generator that creates content, copy and design, based on a category. Wouldn’t it be nice if the tool would then generate a filtered list of content, helping the user’s focus during those crucial first steps?

5 Minutes with Carol from Mimpy and Co.

Designs, Inspiration

This will be the first in a series of interviews that drills into the people behind the Collective Network.

In our first edition of “5 minutes with..” we catch-up with Carol, our resident graphic designer from Mimpy and Co. In our 5 minutes, we get to know more about Carol’s past, her present and her prediction for tomorrow!

Let’s hear it from the lovely Carol.


What are the earliest memories you had as a child?

Mmm, one memory that comes to mind was when my foot got stuck while climbing a tree. Of course, I started freaking out and my parents ended up having to call the fire department to come down and cut the branch to free me. I swore to never climb a tree again haha.

Oh haha. Hella funny. Sorry to hear that!
So, is one of your parents a designer? Or did you have a close family member that introduced you to designing?

Carol

Neither of my parents is into design and no one in my family is within the creative line of work.

But my mother was always a fashionista, I think her sense of fashion and style had an influence on my creative side. My father is a headstrong man who served over 20 years in the military. So looks like I’m the only one in my family within the design industry.
