There's a few different ways to get the result you're looking for. The one I'd go for is this:

1. Make sure your logo layer is the currently active layer
2. Choose Edit > Load Selection (or Command-click the thumbnail of the logo layer in the Layers sidebar)
3. Choose Edit > Invert Selection
4. In the Layers sidebar, make sure to select the layer out of which you'd like to cut out the shape
5. In the Layers sidebar, Control-click that layer and choose Add Mask
