Dear Designer…

Why is my website text in French?!?

Where we take actual questions we’ve been asked and try to de-mystify the dark art of web design…


Client: “Why have you put French text on my website?”

Sleeky: Lorem ipsum is not French, it’s pseudo-Latin placeholder text used in design in place of English to emphasise design elements over content. It also indicates how much text there will be and where it will be positioned on your site.


Client: “Oh, I see. When will you get rid of it?”

Sleeky: Once you’ve approved the design concept we will populate the website with your actual content. For now just focus on the design.


Client: “Got it. Thanks!”
