Object bending and following a 3d path

I want to have a logo follow the path of a virtual 3d cube. By that I mean it should go upwards and then when it reaches the top of the cube, bend and move in z space. How do I set this up?

Here's one approach: (1) lay out the animation on a comp which is mean to be the unfolded cube, then (2) make several square precomps, repositioning the unfolded cube in each to create the individual faces of the cube, then (3) build the cube from the precomps in step 2 with 3D layers.
