I’d like to find a way to explain in just one single word (it can be a neologism) that something will be so awesomely good-looking that it’s “worth visualizing”, that it is “worthy of visualization”.

This single word should be built around the word visualization.

  • Can you clarify what you would be "visualizing"? By visualization are you thinking of an infographic or something like that?

  • To be honest, what i want is a wordplay - I work in a team named "Visualization" in TomTom company, and we do some great looking things - like buildings in 3D, city landmarks and so on. Among them there is one, that is the most complex and awesome. So we want to present it to our company collegues. So that's why im searching for something like "the most Visualization-worth product of visualization team"

  • Could the term contain related words like 'sight' or 'mind' ?

  • Yes, the more proposals, the better. But I hope we can find a word that will be as close as possible to "visualization"

  • The problem here is that visualization is already a cumbersome derived word with a bunch of endings piled on.

Adjective eye-popping may be relevant; it means “Visually astonishing, stunning, incredible”.

A google search suggests the term eyeworthy (also eye worthy, eye-worthy) has some currency, but so far isn't dictionary-worthy. Also consider visualization-worthy, a natural combination of words that isn't neologistic.

Noun eye candy refers to “Any object or sight with considerable visual appeal”.

For a neologism, consider visvalization; though clumsy at first, it reads well after acquaintance.

  • I think nothing but visualization-worthy matches his fastidious criteria. However, I also find visualization-worthy to be the most cringeworthily flinchable double-barrelled victim of logorrhœic planteration to spew forth from the gavaged vomitoria of the Sesquipedalariarium Royale in recent and perhaps even racial memory.

  • @tchrist, Although I disagree that visualization-worthy is the most cringeworthily flinchable etc. (on the grounds that far worse things are easily found), I agree it's abhorrent and intended to say so in the answer but forgot. Jul 29 '14 at 17:44
  • Not your fault, and I’m sorry if I made it sound as though it were. The OP’s stated requirement of somehow involving visualization in the one-word answer is what hamstrings this. It is too narrow. I don’t know if there exists any word that means “worthy of X” that isn’t of the form X-worthy.

Visualize means:

  • To form a mental image of; envisage: tried to visualize the scene as it was described.

I suggest a related term : mind-catching

  • Mind-catching design is more like a motto to me. That is, design is more than eye-catching; it’s about mind-catching. While eye-catching implies beauty, mind-catching means beauty + memorable and powerful content in a complete package. While eye-catching may lean toward creativity in general, mind-catching is more about strategic creativity.

also:

Mind -boggling

  • adj. Informal Intellectually or emotionally overwhelming: "a mind-boggling bazaar of competing manufacturers and overlapping technologies" (William D. Marbach). mind-boggler n.
