Need help with this magazine body and headline font

Hey Everyone,

Really need to match the fonts circled in the image. There are two images, one with what I need circled (low-res) and one that's higher res. Here's the link to an online copy if that would help - http://www.zinio.com/reader.jsp?issn=RX1099-6729

I really appreciate the help.

Fillit display font critique

Forums: 

Hi,

I'd appreciate any comments on my display typeface design called Fillit.

It's nothing fancy, new or groundbreaking – being very novice in type design I did it as an excercise for myself only. The design goal is to create display font for newspaper section headlines that has 1. slab serif general form 2. has plenty of pop = lot of ink per character 3. can form very tight headlines without letters touching each other. 4. to be used in >72 pt

There's a brief specimen attached. I haven't finished all the characters – trying to finish smaller set before doing too much work.

Don't hesitate to be crude :)

Sans serif that works well with Albertina and Scala

Forums: 

Hello,

I’m a typographic layman, nevertheless interested in typography. My favorite serif typefaces are up to now Albertina and FF Scala.
I’m looking for a sans serif typeface that works well as a headline-font with Albertina and Scala. The aim is to set scientific texts. But the typeface ought to work well for body text, too.

My search led me to FF Kievit—a wonderful clear and neutral typeface. Now I’m looking for a typeface that is as clear and neutral as Kievit is, but that has other proportions (when this is the right word for it)—something like DTL Documenta Sans (has unfortunately only one weight), Scala Sans (in my opinion not as clear and neutral as Kievit, but with a wonderful italic like Auto 1 italic (by Underware), or DTL Caspari.
