As a company that’s hooked on innovation, we’re naturally drawn to ingenuity. So, for the second year in a row, Esurance jumped at the chance to sponsor the 2012 Maker Faire Bay Area, a 2-day festival celebrating all things nifty, crafty, inventive, and DIY. The seventh annual event took place May 19 and 20 in San Mateo, California, and attracted inventors, hobbyists, tinkerers, artists, and makers galore to show off their imaginative, useful, and downright awesome creations.
