Logo Animation

I've searched everywhere...But I just can't get the right answer, hope someone here can help me out!

So I got a logo in psd file, very simple one, it's just a few thick brush strokes
and in AE, I want to animate it drawing out, but not using the method from the "Animating Signature" tutorial, it's not the effect I want.

The logo is like half of a ring, and I want it to draw out clockwise from the bottom

If you can't understand my question, please ask.
Any help is appreciated, thanks!

You will get great answers if you upload a still pic of the logo. Is that possible?

Have you tried using an animated Shape Layer as a track matte for the logo? The Stroke or Write-on effect are also common tools used to create such an effect.

If it's your first time with AE, you should definitely start here: [link]
It will help you avoid a lot of frustration.

So does that not sound like circle wipe ...?
