Jason Apaliski is Creative Director at Pereira & O’Dell and has been with the agency since its founding in 2008.

In 2014 his agency was named one of Fast Company’s “Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Advertising” and was also named AdAge’s “Standout Agency of the Year”.
His previous work at Pereira & O’Dell for LEGO (“Go Miniman Go”, LEGO CL!CK”), Muscle Milk (“Sexy Pilgrim”) and Corona (“Most Liked Beer in America”) has taken the agency on a deep dive into branded entertainment and content.
Prior to joining Pereira & O'Dell, Jason worked at AKQA in San Francisco where he led art direction on premium brands including Xbox, Sprite, Visa, Microsoft and Red Bull. During his tenure at AKQA, Jason was a lead art director on the breakthrough Dark Marketing campaign for McDonalds, "The Lost Ring” as well as the staredown spoof, “Unflinching Triumph”, a full length film distributed online only for Red Bull. The Wall Street Journal’s weekend edition listed the movie at the number one position of “What to Watch” in new media content (April 2008) and referenced by Sports Illustrated the “most amusing sports parody”.
