PRESS INFOGRAPHIC, ENIGMA CYPHER MACHINE

This press infographic project explains how was the ENIGMA multi-literate cypher machine.

The model was made of paper, and then the model was photographed.

This press infographic project is about the famous Enigma machine that had its appearance during the Second World War. It was used by a German faction to encrypt messages during the war until Alan Turing’s team managed to decipher its operation, thus shortening the war by an estimated period of 2 to 4 years, thus saving thousands of lives.

For the press infographic project I designed the plans and built the model of the machine on paper. Then the photograph was taken and the infographic was composed on the double page of a newspaper. The press infographic explains the general operation of the machine, its system for encrypting messages, its chronological development, who were the important characters during its existence and the number of alphabets it can produce.

If you want to build your own Enigma machine at home, do not hesitate to write to me at:
