If you're able to call yourself a mixed martial arts referee, it's only fitting that you carry around a standout business card to match this awesome title. This is exactly what MMA referee Mario Yamasaki had in mind when it was time to print up a new set of credentials.

Rather than handing out the traditional rectangular business cards, Yamasaki's unconventional card design takes the shape of an octagon ring, with cutout spaces for two thumbs to engage in a thumb war. As well as being a lasting way to make a first impression, this is surely a business card design that you'll want to share with others—after a round of thumb wresting.

Although this design specifically simulates being involved in a fighting match, this standout business card could inspire countless creative designs that involve others in different aspects of a profession.
