The Vintage Microphone – The Shape
Modelled into the silhouette of a vintage microphone. A microphone, colloquially nicknamed mic or mike is a transducer that converts sound into an electrical signal. Microphones are used in many applications such as telephones, public address systems for concert halls and public events, motion picture production, live and recorded audio engineering, sound recording, two-way radios. Several different types of microphone are in use, which employ different methods to convert the air pressure variations of a sound wave to an electrical signal. The image used here is loosely based on the Shure Brothers microphone, model 55s, Multi-Impedance “Small Unidyne” Dynamic from 1951.
A holiday camp is a type of holiday accommodation that encourages holidaymakers to stay within the site boundary, and provides entertainment and facilities for them throughout the day. Since the 1970s, the term has fallen out of favour with terms such as resort, holiday village and holiday centre replacing it. As distinct from camping, accommodation typically consisted of chalets, accommodation buildings arranged individually or in blocks. From the 1960s onward, many camps also added static caravan accommodation, and today, many static caravans are also termed holiday camps.
