editorial design

I am currently re-designing an action sports magazine and Would love to get some input on Type. Its been quite the task as the criteria seems to grow by the day. Currently we are using Berthold City (headline), Minion Pro (body) and interstate( captions/sidebars). We are trying to do a bit of a 180 and clean up the book a bit. We are a photo driven publication which should traditionally lend itself to a minimalist approach however my creative director wants something with "a little more flair"( but i would like to keep it on the sophisticated side). I was considering Archer, Tungsten and Gotham along with several other H&FJ Fonts, however they all seem to be a bit "overused". I'm trying to stay away from a slab yet still need something with appropriate personality for the mag.

The first exhibition of Tipos Latinos 2010 opened in Santiago, Chile, on April 14th 2010. The program of activities included two days of lectures at the Centro Cultural de España. Scaglione was the keynote speaker on the first day, with a lecture entitled "Shaping Types" that focuses on typography for editorial design. On the second day, Isaías Loaiza presented a lecture about corporate fonts and the role of typography in a corporate id program. The TiposLatinos 2010 exhibition includes two typefaces by TypeTogether: Karmina Sans and Adelle. The photo in this story is courtesy of Consuelo Saavedra.
