Top 5 things that need a redesign
The best way here to describe Saul Bass is to quote his own words.
"My initial thoughts about what a tittle can do was to set mood and the prime underlying core of the film's story, to express the story in some metaphorical way. I saw the title as a way of conditioning the audience, so that when the film actually began, viewers would already have an emotional resonance with it."
"Design is thinking made visual"
Saul Bass created title sequences ranging from Otto Preminger's movie about heroin addiction, The Man With The Golden Arm, which was unthinkable in the 50's to Martin Scorsese which moved him to pioneering optical techniques for the title sequence of Casino.
This iconic American graphic designer is worth researching. You will be surprised at how much of his work you actually already know or see on a regular basis.

Once again brings back childhood memories. My mother loved this movie.
Short conversation with Saul Bass. Finally after searching I found the one for Around the world in 80 Days video is in the link below.
Gold mine site for titling design too. Perhaps an entire new list for all title/motion graphics is in order! http://www.titledesignproject.com/2008/07/around-the-world-in-80-days/

He's fantastic and I love the raw, unperfected feel of his titling.
