It seems the furore surrounding the ill-received 2012 Olympic Games logo may have a more serious impact on the architectural world than first thought. The epilepsy-inducing motif - variously described as 'a broken swastika' and 'a toileting monkey' - is the brainchild of a design team led by Wolff Olins chairman Brian Boylan.

Following the uproar, Boylan has gone into hiding, with enquiries from the press being met with no response. His reticence is unexpected for one in the public-relations world, and poses a dilemma for CABE.

Boylan is a board member at the quango, where he uses his skills to advise the body on erm. . . communications. Does this mean a Garboesque wall of silence is about to descend on the watchdog?
