I like the pictures. The style evokes 20th century product packaging ... and old London Underground posters.
Yeah, here we call it 'Depression-style', even though it stylistically dates from the 1920s. It was quite popular at one time for fresh fruit boxend advertising (your 'product packaging', perhaps?). It evokes a sentimental response to one's grandparents era....
The artist is a local who has gone on to do all sorts of advert stuff, but is best known for his icons of American scenic tourism. I love it when I find a 'PAL' teeshirt and I have several.

The sight filled the northern sky; the imensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer. ~ Northern Lights
