We Are

BlackCumin is the KING-MAKER to all our clients. Those who seek Publicity and Public Relations services are developed from the point of just being a WHISPER, to a SHOUT. We are the ultimate BRAND ARCHITECTS to those clients who task us with handling the communications, marketing, public relations and design elements of their businesses.

The agency took its name from the Black Cumin plant. A plant that Prophet Mohammad reportedly said could cure anything but death itself.

The seeds of the black cumin plant contain over 100 compounds, including some yet to be identified.

Today, black cumin seeds are used as a seasoning spice in different cuisines across the world.

At BlackCumin, we approach our work with:

  • Client needs as top of mind
  • Innovation and Strategy
  • Sharp focus on ROI
  • Cutting edge creativity
