Shape Shifters is a card game for primary school children with some of the symbols, shapes and emblems associated Northern Ireland on one side. The cards connect into a map of the country on the other side. The symbols are minimal and don’t include any of the original colours. The original colours are stripped to remove their political stigma. The aim of the card game is to educate young people on the symbols of Northern Ireland and for the original meanings and design to be celebrated. It is encouraging an education with no bias or political leanings. The name Shape Shifters is to represent how people from Northern Ireland can often question their identity and feel they can ‘shape shift’ between both Irish and British cultures.
