The Verge featuring my Generative Placeholders project

The Verge wrote about my project Generative Placeholders.

Generative Placeholders is a new tool that lets you embed autogenerated placeholder art into a website that changes with every page refresh. It only requires a brief bit of embedded code. The key word here is “placeholder,” which suggests that the tool’s creator, Stefan Bohacek, sees it as the visual equivalent of a Lorem Ipsum text generator (or the far superior Hipster Ipsum), designed to fill a prototype website with something while it’s under construction.


I particularly like that they included a generated image in the article that changes on every page reload, which nicely illustrates the project’s functionality.
