Cryptstagram by The Barbarian Group lets users share information through glitch art.

Created as a side project by creative agency The Barbarian Group, Cryptstagram is a tool that lets users encrypt a hidden message into an image, which can only be unlocked with a specific password.

The tool is a result of the agency's Project Popcorn program, where new employees are teamed up with veterans to work on a side project that embodies the agency's values, inventiveness, playfulness, and technical skills. The group that came up with Cryptstagram wanted to create something that involved cryptography and glitch art.
