You remember some logo similar to this?
Reminded me a bit of the Richie Brothers logo. In which the the 'rb" resembles a tractor (they sell/auction farm equipment).
I've heard that style referred to as a "ribbon" look, with shadows where pieces cross.
Of course a real ribbon can't be bent into a shape like that, but there is a resemblance. QVC (a tv shopping network) uses a similar effect with their Q, and I'm sure there are many other examples.
This style of the logos is based Origami graphical structure mimic of folded paper.
Here you can find some examples. http://designmodo.com/origami-logo/
