Why Data Populator?

“When we don’t work with real data, we deceive ourselves” ― Josh Puckett

We believe designers should work with realistic and meaningful data as early as possible in the design process.

Here's why:

  1. Content informs design decisions – and helps you convey your purpose
  2. Data are relentless – so digital products must be designed for robustness
  3. It's fun 🎉 – seeing your design evolve with meaningful data is motivating and rewarding
